I had a big baby (10lbs 6oz) with an average sized head (50-70%) and I had a second degree tear on the bottom and a few grazes.  I didn’t have any pain in recovery, but needed the grazes cauterized at my 6 and 12 week postpartum appt because they wouldn’t heal and hurt during sex.  I am terrible at remembering to do kegals and have a smidge of incontinance when I sneeze with a full bladder.  So annoying!!  Not sure how much the massage would have helped.
