Post birth, French midwifes get women back in shape

Issued on:

As part of our series on uniquely French jobs, we meet a midwife. Although there are midwifes all over the world, in France they have a special job to do after they help women give birth. Midwife Anna Roy talks about la rééducation périnéale, reeducating the perineum, the pelvic muscles that get stretched out during pregnancy.
