The main conference includes 14.5 hours of accredited education focused on improving care for families in the perinatal period. During this time of transformation, the care families receive is critical and sets a foundation for health and well-being. Join us with these expert speakers for info-packed presentations rich with transferable knowledge and practice-changing skills. You’ll learn about perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, informed consent in maternity care, preventing urinary incontinence, physiological childbirth, and much more.

In addition to the main conference, delegates have the opportunity to extend their learning experience with three add-on lecture packs. These lecture packs are available exclusively to conference delegates and take a focused look at a key area in perinatal health. Brand new at this year’s conference is the Labour Support Skills lecture pack with 5 presentations to improve your care during labour and delivery. The Essential Lactation Skills and the Tools of the Lactation Trade lecture packs are also available to take your care to the next level.

On October 28, our Closing Keynote Speaker Adriana Lozada, AdvCD(DONA), CSC, CEMC, CBP will present “ Destination Laborland: Setting a Fresh Course Towards Physiological Birth”. Adriana brings her multi-layered and multi-cultural background into her work, and she is inspired by her passion for birth advocacy. Her lecture offers us an opportunity to explore a new model of birth that supports parents in using new tools and looking inwards during the birth process.
