Be sure to check the VIDM 2021 Research Posters

Just a few more days until the start of the Virtual International Day of the Midwife conference. We can’t wait to meet you!

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.  While you are waiting take some time to explore the 19 posters.  Additionally, many of the poster presenters chose to be interviewed. Links to the podcast interviews are found below their names on the presentation page with more added as we go.

Please take some time to review this excellent work. Follow the link below to the presentation page.

Are you ready for VIDM 2021?

Look to the right of this blog post ⇒  That is how much time you have to get ready for VIDM 2021.

Attending a 24 hour conference with concurrent sessions  + a pre-conference event all via online takes planning! When are you available? Which sessions are your “must attend” and which ones can you catch as recordings? Be sure to consider the Preconference event with WHO.  Review the VIDM 2021 Programme Calendar and save the sessions to your calendar. Make note of the session room (1 – 2 – 3 – 4). Remember to check the link in each session listing for the time in your location — all conference sessions are scheduled using UTC.

How about the conference technology? Attend a drop in session to check out how BigBlueButton works (BBB is NOT set up like ZOOM).  See below to find a session that works for you or look here. The moderators are available to answer any questions. Make note of the room for each drop-in session. Sessions marked with * will be available in Spanish or English as requested by the attendees. Headsets are strongly recommended!

Login instructions for BigBlueButton are here: Accessing the Conference 2021.

We can’t wait to meet you!

The VIDM 2021 Programme is now available!

Welcome to the 13th Virtual International Day of the Midwife conference — as always free and fully online. 

We have our highest number of presentations to date — over 40 presentations in 24 hours PLUS a Preconference event with WHO associates Elizabeth Iro and Fran McConville starting 2 hours beforehand. Speakers come from 23 countries, with presentations offered in English and Spanish. The Student Stream offers multiple sessions of particular interest to student midwives, including the 2 Invited Speaker sessions (Sessions 04 and 15). Search for the “Student Stream” category. Many of the presentations focus on the VIDM 2021 theme “Birth Equity for All”.

Starting with the preconference event with representatives from the World Health Organization (WHO) and continuing throughout the conference with the opening keynote address (Session 1 – Soo Downe ) to the closing keynote address (Session 24 – Kaveri Mayra), there is much to inspire and support your midwifery practice with interests both local and global. Check out the programme for yourself by clicking the link below or looking under VIDM 2021 on the menu bar above.

VIDM 2021 Programme Calendar

The VIDM 2021 Programme Calendar is published using the UTC time zone, starting with the Preconference session at 20:00 on 04 May.
