An Innovative Health Professionals Training Program to support maternal health


Zoom meeting 

The partners conducted a Zoom meeting on the 21st of September 2020 with the focus upon discussing how the project can adapt to the current COVID-19 situation. The main focus of the meeting was how to ensure that the project can still include some interviews with mothers. The consortium discussed the possibility of digital storytelling as a potential solution. Another aspect discussed was how to deliver the developed training curriculum, the partnership engaged in a fruitful discussion about the possible element of using an online learning platform. Both ideas will be explored further, and it was agreed that the National Agency would be contacted for advice.



Martin Persson and Gareth Davies were invited as keynotes to the conference to talk about psychosocial aspects and patient perspectives respectively.

Both informed about the various Erasmus+ projects, including Body Confident Mums, to the attending participants.
