Virtual International Day of the Midwife (VIDM) is a 24-hour FREE ONLINE CONFERENCE centred on 5th May 2020 for midwives and anyone interested in childbirth. VIDM 2020 celebrates the International Year of the Midwife
Each year VIDM receives a number of outstanding posters which illustrate many aspects of midwifery practice and research around the globe. This year is no different. We have provided a separate category for Midwifery Students to showcase their work, many of which are interesting research as well. Additionally, some of the poster presenters chose to be interviewed — Podcast interviews are found below their names on the presentation pages.
Please take some time to review this excellent work. Follow the links to the presentation pages.
The VIDM 2020 call for proposals / expression of interest is now open for conference presentations and posters. Student Stream available.
