There was a tremendously positive panel discussion at this event. The understanding amongst Marit Leggesse from the Hamlin College of Midwives and Beatrice Friedli, Denise Eigenmann and Vera Maria Probst of the ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences was evident, and the audience appreciated the passion and engagement with which they responded to the pertinent questions put to them by our moderator Astrid von Stockar. 


We are thrilled to be part of such fruitful partnerships.
