Confirmed Speaker Profiles
Our free to attend Maternity, Midwifery and Baby professional study days continue to grow in popularity with midwives and allied healthcare practitioners wanting to update their skills and keep on top of revalidation requirements and as a vehicle for organisations and companies to engage with our large professional audience.
In 2017, we will be making it even easier for midwives and their colleagues around the UK to participate, with MMB events in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh.
Delegates at the Manchester MMB 2016 in September said:
“Really well planned, a great selection and variety of speakers with lots of choice on what I wanted to listen to.”
“Interesting range of topics and good exhibition displays.”
“Informative and relevant – provided good ideas for our own practice within trust.”
“This event has been very enjoyable, thought provoking and extremely relevant to current issues in maternity care.”
“Excellent opportunity to meet other midwives and gain CPD for my preceptorship and revalidation.”
“Fantastic opportunity to gain new knowledge in an enjoyable environment.”
