About the Event
Perineal trauma is a common obstetrical event. However, Midwives make every effort to avoid it, and many have very low perineal trauma rates. Many midwives report a need for more clinical experience and review on approaches to perineal repair. The Perineal Repair Workshop will provide hands-on practice on these key approaches.
