Virtual International Day of the Midwife May 5th 2011 “The World Needs
Midwives Today More Than Ever”
Welcome to the Virtual International Day of the Midwife (VIDM) which
celebrates the International Day of the Midwife. This is a FREE ONLINE
CONFERENCE which presents online events every hour for 24 hours on the 5th May starting at 12 pm New Zealand time (note this is Wed May 4 evening in N. America). All are welcome including midwives, students and anyone interested in birth and maternity care.

There’s an easy to use time converter.
Here’s a sample of some of the free classes and speakers:

The day starts at noon on Thur, May 5 in New Zealand. It is very easy on the link to get the time conversions for anywhere in the world. (For me, on the Pacific coast of N. America, it starts on Wed, May 4 at 5 p.m. for instance. I am the second speaker and my talk will be Wed at 6 p.m. (Pacific) 7 p.m., 8 p.m., 9 p.m. Eastern in N. America)
