This evening is dedicated to us working with women and their families, we are all modern midwives, part of the evolution of midwifery practice and promotion of women’s wisdom.

The evening will be informal with wine, pizza and fun entertainment ;-) and there will be time for you to share your experience and advice, enjoy a couple of drinks and some nibbles as well as hear from some brilliant speakers.
