Roughly eight in ten women who give birth vaginally suffer a tear in the pelvic tissues. In about a third of cases, the tear affects muscles in the pelvis and/or back passage. Forty per cent suffer a pelvic floor condition that can last a decade.
Patient testimonies are also positive. One woman involved in a trial during her second birth in 2020 said: ‘I suffered tears in my perineum muscle [the area between the vagina and back passage] in both of my births. The first time was a real struggle. But the second time, when I was treated using the Retractor, it barely felt like I had any stitches. In just days I felt back to normal.’
