Join the National Council of Indigenous Midwives as we host another national forum on Indigenous midwifery and birth!

The forum will include a variety of topics and perspectives from community stories and initiatives to research and policy. Let’s connect together for two days of knowledge and inspiration. All are welcome.

Watch parties for this virtual forum will be hosted in all directions to facilitate connecting together! Watch party hosts will gain access to a suite of resources to host additional in-person activities during the forum, and can also apply for funds to support their parties. You do not need to be part of a watch party to participate in the forum.

The first ten individual participants to register will receive a free mailed copy of the Restoring Midwifery and Birth Workbook
