Welcome to the All-Ireland 2021 Maternity & Midwifery Festival

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

The All-Ireland Maternity & Midwifery Festival will take online on Tuesday 9th February 2021.

February 2020’s first ever, free to attend, live streamed All-Ireland Maternity and Midwifery Festival may have coincided with Storm Ciara, but it didn’t stop over 420 healthcare professionals joining us in Dublin and 619 live stream views over the course of the day.

The world is a very different place to when we last met in Dublin. COVID-19 has tested health services and the staff who work across the NHS to the limit. Midwives and their colleagues have had to show tremendous resilience and innovation, in difficult circumstances, to continue to meet the needs of pregnant women.

The 2021 All-Ireland Festival will be a time to reflect on lessons learned but also to spotlight all the other fantastic work that has continued over this period, despite the demands the virus has inflicted.

Every presentation will be live streamed so you can book with confidence, knowing that your festival will go ahead online, with a full boxset available to view on demand afterwards so that you have a lasting record of all the fantastic video presentations from the day.
