Updated Training for Midwives Why take the Perineal Suture Update Course?

Because I heard so many times in a puerperal woman this…. "they throw me the points".

Because the "sometimes when you see a tear you don't even know where to start" I also heard it.

Because after cervical cancer, the vagina became for me a universe to explore

Because... when was the last time you updated on perineal suture? Have you just got your place and want to practice more and better? Do you want to learn the technique that causes less pain and heals better the women you serve?

What do they say about our work?

"I felt that there was a before and after in my professional life"

At the end of the studies, the topic of tears, episiotomy and sutures was an uncomfortable topic. Little was said, you learned by practicing in front of the woman, Ufff…a cloud full of emotions.

When I attended the suture training for the first time, I felt that there was a before and after in my professional life.

At the end of the training, I returned home, as a different midwife, trained and safe.

A strong feeling of wanting to put everything learned into practice!
