Announcing the VIDM 2023 Conference Programme!

Announcing the 15th Virtual International Day of the Midwife Conference Programme, with a total of 44 presentations over 24 hours PLUS a preconference event with World Health Organization (WHO) associates.
Presenters come from 20 countries across 6 continents, with presentations offered in English, Spanish, Indonesian, and Portuguese. Presentations are framed around the 2023 theme ” The Art and Science of Midwifery: Celebrating 15 years of VIDM”.   There is much to inspire and support your midwifery practice, starting with the WHO preconference event and continuing throughout the conference. Four keynote speakers will share their insights: VIDM Founder Sarah Stewart, Inderjeet Kaur, Molly O’Brien, and Toyin Saraki. The Invited Speakers, Elizabeth Newnham and Tania Pariona Tarqui (CHIRAPAQ) provide interesting perspectives.
