  Perineum – Discussion
 
What is the perineum?

The perineum is the area between the rectum and the vagina. During delivery of the baby this area undergoes a huge stretching process, which sometimes results in tearing. Your doctor may make a cut during the delivery in order to prevent the tearing that takes place. This is called an episiotomy.
