• Teaching students how to perform perineal repair: optimal learning

Suturing of perineal injury after vaginal birth can be challenging for midwives obstetricians.

It may be difficult to have optimal visualization of the tear, and the woman might feel sore and vulnerable after birth.

This leaves the working conditions challenging for us who perform perineal repair: we may suffer from needle-stick injuries.
