I have no doubt that if those steps weren't taken I would have had a c-section instead. In fact, I heard alot of comments from nurses that they couldn't believe I didn't end up with a c-section.

Good Luck!
Agreed re: never saying never. There are instances when (I believe) the episiotomy is appropriate.
