In recognition of the World Health Organisation 'International Year of the Nurse and Midwife', the Optimising Maternal Wellbeing conference focuses on the important role of the midwife in working with women to enable them to make informed decisions, improve their experience of childbirth and optimise individualised care in the postpartum period.
