The Past, Present and the Future: Why Midwives Matter

Join us on May 3rd for a special presentation in honor of International Day of the Midwife! This year we are thrilled to welcome the wonderful Sheena Byrom, whose book "The Roar Behind the Silence: why kindness, compassion and respect matter in maternity care" jointly edited with Soo Downe, is being used as a resource to improve maternity care throughout the world. Sheena’s presentation is titled “The past, present and the future: why midwives matter”, and will touch on the historical context of the midwife and midwifery, review the current global position and offer potential solutions for the future. We look forward to seeing you online as we celebrate the important role of midwives around the world!

MEAC Midwifery CEU, ACNM CEU and MidPLUS Point will be applied for.

According to the International Confederation of Midwives, a midwife is ‘recognised as a responsible and accountable professional who works in partnership with women to give the necessary support, care and advice during pregnancy, labour and the postpartum period, to conduct births on the midwife’s own responsibility and to provide care for the newborn and the infant. This care includes preventative measures, the promotion of normal birth, the detection of complications in mother and child, the accessing of medical care or other appropriate assistance and the carrying out of emergency measures’. Although there is overwhelming evidence that the implementation of midwifery and deployment of professional midwives in all countries would be a vital solution in improving maternal and infants health and well-being, there continues to be lack of understanding of the role of the midwife, and inequalities in access to midwifery care. This talk will touch on the historical context of the midwife and midwifery, review the current global position and offer potential solutions for the future.
