Midlands Maternity & Midwifery Festival 2021


768 PARTICIPANTS ALREADY REGISTERED!


Last year’s Midlands Festival was the first of our 2020 programmes to go entirely online in response to the pandemic. Not deterred by this new way of engaging with our professional programme and exhibition:

  • 450 healthcare professionals and student midwives attended virtually
  • 900 registered to receive the on demand boxset

The 2021 Midlands Festival will be a time to reflect on lessons learned and new innovations, as the vaccination programme is rolled out and, as always will spotlight all the other fantastic work that has continued over this period, despite the demands the virus has inflicted.
