Midwifery Wisdom Podcast

Welcome to another episode of the Midwifery Wisdom Podcast! This week, Augustine is joined by the innovative Scandinavian Midwife and Inventor, Malene Hegenberger.

Malene introduces us to her groundbreaking creation, the Hegenberger Retractor, a revolutionary tool designed as a "third hand" for midwives during suturing procedures. She delves into the inspiration behind its inception, her creative process, and provides insights into its usage and potential future developments.

In addition to discussing the intricacies of her invention, Augustine and Malene explore the importance of balance and well-being amidst the demands of a busy lifestyle. They also emphasize the significance of suturing as a vital skill in midwifery, highlighting how proper care during this process empowers birthing women.

Tune in for a captivating conversation that merges innovation, empowerment, and the essence of compassionate care in the realm of childbirth.
