The Zepherina Veitch Memorial Lecture
Each year, The Royal College of Midwives invites a leading midwifery academic to deliver a thought-provoking and inspiring lecture, presenting the best in current midwifery research. The lecture commemorates Zepherina Veitch, a pioneer of modern midwifery and one of the founders of the institution which would become the RCM. Recent lecturers have included Professor Denis Walsh, Professor Dame Tina Lavender, Professor Helen Cheyne, Professor Debra Bick, Professor Sheila Hunt, Professor Mary Renfrew and Professor Helen Spiby.
We are proud to announce this year’s Zepherina Veitch speaker is RCM Director of Midwifery, Louise Silverton CBE. Louise will lead the lecture ‘Enemas and shaves for all: midwifery since 1978′.
