Episiotomy scissors are a specific type of surgical scissor used during childbirth to create a clean incision, called an episiotomy, in the perineum, the area between the vagina and anus. This incision can be necessary in some deliveries to allow more space for the baby to pass through the birth canal,

reducing the risk of tearing.


Here are some details about episiotomy scissors:

  • Size: Episiotomy scissors typically come in a size of 5.5 inches.
  • Material: They are made from surgical-grade stainless steel for durability and ease of sterilization.
  • Design: These scissors have blunt tips to minimize the risk of accidentally cutting deeper than intended and angled blades for better visibility and control during the incision.
  • Use: Episiotomy scissors are for single-use only and disposed of after a single procedure.
