The 2nd Midlands Maternity & Midwifery Festival & Awards take place in Leicester on Tuesday 9th April 2019.

The second in our 2019 series of 5 regional and national festivals will be hosted in Leicester for the first time this spring as we visit the King Power Stadium, a new venue for us in the Midlands with increased capacity to reflect the growing demand for places both from healthcare professionals wanting to take advantage of a top quality, professional programme and organisations looking to showcase their products and campaigns to our influential audience.

The Midlands Maternity and Midwifery Festival 2018 saw over 600 maternity and midwifery professionals and aspiring midwives come together to either attend the festival or to watch the live stream.

The Midlands Maternity & Midwifery Festival is your chance to:

  • Keep up to date with the latest innovations and issues in maternity and midwifery
  • Hear leading speakers from the Midlands and further afield
  • Gain hours of credits for professional revalidation
  • Get a free ‘box set’ of all the video, podcasts and presentations from the clinical programme as an educational resource
  • Gain a certificate of attendance for up to 10 hours of participatory learning for revalidation and CPD

After the Festival, every delegate receives, free of charge, the full box set of films and podcasts from the day – over 10 hours of professional content to inform their practice and learning.

Our 2019 events will build on the success of previous festivals, making them more inclusive than ever, with new studio streams for neonatal and practice nurses, health visitors and paediatric nurses.

Many of these videos can now been seen on our new Maternity and Midwifery Forum YouTube channel and our videos are now viewed in 134 countries.
