I am very interested by this online midwifery meetings.
I use another program for distance courses with student midwives. They
can even be in international placements and discuss with other students
here, in Québec, Canada.
At the first meeting, I was stoped by a login problem and I was not
able to go further.
The second was completely in the middle of the night for me (4 AM). At
another time, I would have tried but I am too tired at this moment.
I would suggest a more precise goal for those meetings: a theme of
research, tools and ressources for researchers, ethic, some problems,
I just finish my PhD ( first midwife in Québec) and there is a serious
lack of research on midwifery and maternity care.
keep the efforts. I am very preoccupied by the situation for pregnant
and birthing women on our planet. Midwives need to be together and
strong. Research is a good tool to bring light on deeper issues.
