Welcome to the Wales and South West Maternity & Midwifery Online Festival!
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 Wales but to celebrate and share knowledge, to network and recharge our batteries, but we’ve got the next best thing.
The Wales and South West Maternity and Midwifery Festival will be live streamed on this page on Wednesday 16 September. A day of leadership, education and clinical updates to keep you abreast of latest developments and innovations at the click of a mouse.

The programme commences at 09.00 and the live stream will play below from 08.55 on Wednesday 16th September. Please sign in with your email to verify your identity and ensure we are able to send you your certificate of participation.
