Stronger Together: Midwifery for the 2020s

Stronger Together: Midwifery for the 2020s

14 March 2020 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
It is with great regret that we have decided to postpone our Spring National Meeting in Stamford planned for Saturday 14th March 2020. Several of the speakers and quite a few of the participants understandably decided that they couldn’t risk travelling and had already cancelled. As we learned more about the importance of social distancing to limit the spread of COVID-19 it became obvious that it was not wise to go ahead with the meeting. We are very sorry for the inevitable disappointment but I’m sure you understand why we have taken this decision.

We will probably arrange for an online National Meeting to take place in the next couple of weeks – we have the technology, we have the capability and more importantly we have Linda Wylie who is one of the brains behind the Virtual International Day of the Midwife! So I’m sure we can sort something out.

Everyone who bought a ticket online will be contacted and will receive a refund.

ARM Spring National Meeting

The theme of the day is to review where we are at the beginning of the 2020s, identify our key challenges and how we can meet those by acting strongly together as women, midwives, birth workers, and activists.
