Media and Publicity Officer: Hollie Beavan

 

Student Midwives, qualified Midwives and prospective students are all welcome to join the society to take advantage of the events we organise. Bringing people together in this way creates a great community of support for our members and keeps ideas fresh for those in practice.

We are always open to new ideas from our members so please contact us with your suggestions.

The committee meet regularly through the year to put things in place for some great events. There is an official Annual General Meeting (AGM) in March each year where new comittee officers are elected, however if you would like to join the committee as a general member please get in touch at any point throughout the year - we would welcome any extra contribution!

We as a society have so many plans for this years calender, so keep your eyes peeled to see when tickets go live! 

'Born into Positivity' Conference.

 

Please note. Tickets for this event are limited.

'Born into Positivity' is a conference hosted by the UWE Midwifery Society around the importance of promoting positivity when it comes to birth experiences instead of ‘normality’. What can we do as birth supporters to encourage this positivity during pregnancy and childbirth?. The event is open to everyone as we would like to discuss how we as a society can do more to create a positive atmosphere for women during this vulnerable time. 
Speakers:

  • Mark Harris (Midwife & award-winning author)

  • Milli Hill (Founder of the positive birth movement & freelance author) 

  • Clemmie Hooper (Midwife, blogger & best-selling author)

Siobhan Miller (Founder of the Positive Birth Company and Hypnobirthing Teacher)

 

More speaker profiles will be released very soon
