Answer: Hi, It may be worthwhile finding out about some pregnancy classes in your area. You may also want to read some birthing books that may be able to provide some more information to you.An episiotomy is a cut to the perineum taht is rarely performed when the birth is delayed or forceps are used. This needs to be stitched. A birthing pool is a pool for giving birth in. Birth equipment are things that are need for the birth such as a warm towel for the baby. Best wishes, Alex.
