At the 31st International Confederation of Midwives Triennial Congress in Toronto, Canada, we had the opportunity to interview midwives enrolled in the Young Midwifery Leaders (YML) program. We asked them about what needs midwives have in their community, and the change that they want to see. You can find the first set of interviews here.
