"Stitch Along" Interactive Online Perineal Suturing Workshop

About our "Stitch Along"

"Stitch Along" is a 3 hour interactive session to enable any Midwifery student or Midwife to cover the basics of perineal repair. It explores basic anatomy and physiology, assessment of perineal trauma, communication and how to suture first, second degree tears and episiotomies. 

The session is suitable for current student and qualified staff and costs £10. You can book your place below and we run sessions monthly.

Please note that these sessions require a minimum of 10 attendees to go ahead.

You will also need to purchase a suture kit and you may wish to buy a vagina simulator in addition, however this isn't necessary.

We will explore the following topics:

  • Basic Anatomy and Physiology

  • Handling suture materials and instruments
  • Consent

  • NICE Guidelines
  • Analgesia and aftercare

  • OASI Care Bundle

  • A personal perspective

  • Interactive "stitch along" participatory session

Sessions will take place online via Zoom using the link provided in the confirmation once you have booked. This link is unique to you.

The session will last 3 hours (including a 10 minute break) and is provided by our Founder and CEO Steph Wild, who is a Registered Midwife.

You will be provided with a certificate of attendance following the session for your portfolio.

Each session costs £10 to attend and you will need to cancel within 10 days to receive a refund or you can reschedule your booking if done so at least 7 days before the session. Refunds cannot be provided if you do not attend.

I fully believe this day should be mandatory as part of our curriculum.

Thank you for letting me tell Mollie’s story. This is how I get to be a parent.

Everything was discussed so sensitively and with so much insight. Today has been invaluable and I will carry it with me throughout my career.

I have learnt more today about the impact of baby loss than in my 25 year career as a midwife.

Thought provoking and very much needed in this trust - and ALL trusts.

You have given me the courage I needed when caring for bereaved families.

Imagine how we would improve as a profession if every health profession undertook this course.
