The Nordic Midwifery Congress 2016 opened with more than 800 midwives from the whole Nordic region and beyond, gathering together to share research, best practices, experiences and inspiration. Leaders in midwifery, sexual, reproductive and maternal health opened the Congress. Girls’ Globe had the opportunity to speak with them directly.
The Presidents of Midwives united in the messages to empower midwives to take action. “There is no place for complacency” said Frances Day-Stirk, President of the International Confederation of Midwives, and the Keynote Speaker at the opening of the congress. Girls’ Globe had the opportunity to speak with these inspirational leaders.
