An episiotomy is a cut the doctor or midwife makes in the perineum, the area between the vagina and anus, to help deliver a baby or prevent the muscles and skin around the vagina from tearing during delivery. The cut is made just before the baby's head comes out of the birth canal and it is stitched up after the birth.
