Julie Dawid.jpg
Julie Dawid is an independent midwife, an age old profession which is under threat. In 2013, only about 100 of the UK's many thousand midwives choose to work directly for women and their families rather than for the health service. Being an independent midwife is a way of working which enables the pregnant woman to choose the person who will attend her at one of the most important moment of her life, and to build a relationship of trust with her midwife. The result? Deeply satisfying birth experiences, healthy mothers and babies, happy fathers, and relationships which last a lifetime.

The VIDM is thrilled to have Julie welcome our participants with song this year.
