VIDM 2021 :: Call for proposals now open!

The Virtual International Day of the Midwife celebrates the International Day of the Midwife by bringing together midwives, students, consumers and all parties interested in childbirth from across the globe using online electronic media.  A variety of live events are presented every hour for 24 hours across 4th/5th/6th May 2021 (depending on time zone) starting at 22:00 UTC on 5th May.  To check your local starting time, click HERE.

VIDM wants to hear from you! The call for proposals is now open for both presentations and online posters. What are you excited about in midwifery? What are your research interests? Share your ideas with the VIDM community. Both posters and presentations will have a dedicated Student Stream in 2021.
