Perineal Repair for Childbirth

Come improve your suturing skills!


We all know that midwives' experience learning perineal assessment and repair during core midwifery education is often limited to attaining competency at the novice level. Midwifery clients benefit when midwives continue learning the technical skills and didactic knowledge needed for wound evaluation and closure.


Join Nell Tharpe CNM, FACNM for this hands-on workshop. where we'll build a midwife's toolbox of varying closure techniques to enhance women’s experience and safety during birth. This workshop builds on core midwifery competencies for pelvic floor preservation and repair so that midwives can assess tissues before and after birth, and when needed perform repairs  efficiently, skillfully, and with confidence.
