The image used to promote this year’s event depicts the new everyday life of the new mother during COVID-19 who can receive online support for breastfeeding and engage in online research with us.
In addition, it symbolizes the standard operating practices for all of us who need to follow social distancing guidelines and wherever possible stay at home and engage online.
This year’s event will be 100% online with the Doctoral Midwifery Research Society partnering with our renowned and trusted colleagues from Narrowcast Media Group who have streamed all of our own festivals. As such this event will be live on the day and the event will also be available to view on demand.
