Suturing in a Real Midwifery Practice*

‘Suturing in a Real Midwifery Practice’ is a ‘hands on’ workshop designed for students and primary practitioners who want to learn a simple and straightforward approach to suturing. It is perfect for practical application in a real midwifery practice, for refreshing existing skills, and as preparation for exams! Some of the workshop topics include preserving the perineum, episiotomy, evaluating the wound, informed consent, choosing supplies & equipment, choices for anesthesia, current trends in repair, postpartum care, and more. The participant will observe and practice hand & instrument ties, interrupted sutures, running sutures, subcutaneous sutures, and learn their application to pelvic floor wounds; perineal, labial & periurethral wounds, and bleeders.
