Trustees Anna Cannon and Emma Mills were very grateful to have the opportunity to represent midwives@ethiopia at the ICM conference in Prague, June 2014. The trustees presentation went well with a full room of over two hundred people and lots of lively debate following. Throughout the five day conference, Emma and Anna were able to learn valuable information to share with others at m@e, to meet many fantastic midwives from around the world who shared the passion for saving mothers lives, and to form some strong links with other agencies. A particular highlight was meeting the wonderful people at MAFFilms who really showed great understanding about the challenges for mothers and babies worldwide, and who do some fantastic work. M@e are delighted to be working with MAFfilms to translate learning DVDs into Amharic to use on our training courses for HEWs. It was fantastic to listen to Ethiopian midwives presenting and to meet lots of African midwives who were keen to share stories from their countries. Prague was beautiful, the conference was really well organised and, although it was exhausting, our trustees enjoyed every minute!
