Explore the VIDM 2020 Posters — Outstanding!

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.
