Description

Suturing for Midwives - Retreat is happening on Thursday, May 18, 2023 at 04:00PM EDT at Intimate Coastal Maine Setting with tickets starting at $102.50

This in-person midwifery retreat combines focused learning with good food, lots of discussion, all in a stellar setting on the rocky coast of Maine.

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

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 and creative skills for assessing and approximating tissues.

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

Midwives can stay on site or commute from nearby Boothbay Harbor. All participants are welcomed Thursday after 4 pm for a casual get together. Accommodations with On Site tickets are provided in Nell's home. Departure is Sunday by 10 am (3-nights). There are two private rooms and one double room all with shared bath. Rooms are reserved exclusively for Retreat Participants.
