Episode 21 - Perineal suturing

In this episode (our last for 2022!) Mel and B discuss repair of perineal tears. We look into the research on the need to suture first and second degree tears and what would happen if they were left unsutured. We also look at strategies to speed up healing and reduce pain and swelling from perineal tears. This is our last episode for the year and we are taking a short break and will be back with more weekly episodes in late January 2023
