Midwifery practice on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity

Hosted By: Member Association

By honouring midwives, UNESCO is honouring all women themselves. Beyond the context of the current medicalisation of birth and violence against women, the conference, open to the public, focuses on women’s own capacities to realise themselves in a chosen maternity and how midwives, in their practice, establish themselves as partners in their own expectations, choices and knowledge with the father or co-parent.
