Prof. Billie Hunter has been a midwife for 40 years and was active in teaching and research from 1996 until her retirement in 2022. She has released numerous publications and is internationally known for her research on emotional aspects within midwifery and obstetrics, including studies on emotional labour, stress, and resilience. Prof. Billie Hunter guided the development of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Midwifery. She was rewarded with the CBE in June 2018 in recognition of her merits for midwifery and midwifery studies in Great Britain and Europe.

Aim of the conference

The 7th International Conference is intended to serve the professional exchange and networking of midwives and other professions in the German-speaking and European area, who are active in research, teaching or (extra-)clinical practice and who are interested in midwifery science. It aims to create a space for reflection and discussion that stimulates research interests, innovative approaches to midwifery care and encourages reflection on (extra-)clinical experiences and own research activities.

During the conference, research results and scientific-methodological challenges of midwifery science as well as relevant related sciences will be presented for discussion in lectures and poster presentations.
