The third event of the Midwifery and Global Maternal Health Webinar series
This webinar may be of interest to anyone wanting to know more current issues in the field of UK midwifery and maternal health, as well as applied feminist theories, liberatory praxis and midwifery narratives.
The Midwifery and Global Maternal Health webinar series are developed to supplement studies in midwifery and global maternal health, stimulate conversation and gather in a community of learning.
We invite both graduate and undergraduate students in both midwifery and global maternal health in addition to any other students and staff members who are interested in the topics.
This webinar is also open to the public.

Resilience is defined as 'the capacity to withstand or to recover quickly from difficult circumstances' and for many in the field of midwifery and maternal health, resilience has become a euphemism for surviving unsustainable, inhabitable working conditions; where blame is more likely to be placed on individuals rather than institutions.
In conversation with Professor Billie Hunter and Sheena Byrom, both leaders in the field of midwifery and maternal health, we aim to capture a snapshot of big structural challenges impacting midwifery and the UK maternal health system.
Student Midwife, Sally Davies, a co-facilitator of the webinar, provides important insights from current student midwives.
Though we do not aim to solve all of the issues in midwifery and maternal health, the aim of the webinar is to bring about a discussion which captures the now and looks to the future, starting with the small, everyday acts that midwives, particularly, reclaim the word "resilience".
