Welcome to Maternity & Midwifery Forum

The UK and Ireland’s largest regional gatherings of midwifery professionals

We look forward to welcoming you to The Wales & South West Maternity & Midwifery Online Festival on Wednesday 16th September 2020.

With 600,000 babies born each year, midwives aren’t about to let COVID-19 stop them in their tracks.

We might not be able to come together in Cardiff to celebrate and share knowledge, to network and recharge our batteries, but we’ve got the next best thing.

The Wales and South West England Maternity and Midwifery Festival will be live streamed on Wednesday 16 September entirely online. A day of leadership, education and clinical updates to keep you abreast of latest developments and innovations at the click of a mouse.
