Suturing for Midwives – Retreat at Green Landing Lodge

September 8 @ 6:00 pm - September 11 @ 9:00 am

This 2-day Midwife Camp  provides the basis for midwives to expand their suturing skills & explore new ways of performing repairs.

This in-person midwifery retreat combines focused learning with a stellar setting on the rocky coast of Maine. 11 CE

The retreat has 3 sessions that build on each other and provide time for practice, connecting with other participants, and enjoying time for rest and reflection. Session content is designed to expand each participant’s suturing skills, explore new ways (and whys!) of performing repairs, and discuss the clinical challenges of repairs encountered in practice. The schedule allows participants to build their technical skills.

To ensure everyone gets individualized mentoring, workshops are limited to 6 participants. The core workshop runs from 9am-5pm Friday & Saturday.

Housing is provided with On Site tickets and begins Thursday after 4 pm and ends Sunday at 10 am (3-nights). All rooms are private with shared bath and are reserved exclusively for Retreat Participants. Additional space may be available – if buying a commuter ticket & are interested in a spot, please email to check availability.

ACNM specialty credit Program # 2021-154 provided through 1-18-2024

The retreat begins with a welcome gathering on Thursday evening and ends with a group breakfast on Sunday Morning.

Day One we begin with Session One: Knot-tying and Suturing followed by an afternoon session of Case Reviews, and group gathering for dinner.

Day Two offers unstructured time for practice before and after Session Two: Repair of Birth Lacerations. Midwives can stay on site or commute from nearby Boothbay Harbor.

For Nell’s well-being, Covid-19 vaccination & booster are required by all participants. Please attest to your vaccination status upon registration and email a copy of your vaccination card to confirm your registration.
