Product description

For the 26th Sensitive Midwifery Symposium we landed in a new era and there is so much MOVEMENT, it is essential to make sure we are aligned. The theme of 2022 is Midwifery Movement Matters. We had an incredible time together. For those who were not able to attend, make sure to get your hands on the recordings. 

Sensitive Midwifery Symposium is one of the largest and most prestigious midwifery and perinatal conferences in Africa, initiated in 1996 by the Sister Lilian Centre, which specialises in midwifery, pregnancy, birth and parenting education and advice.

Sensitive Midwifery Symposium aims to make a positive difference to midwifery and maternity and child care while celebrating the professions involved. It offers you a unique and innovative blend of expertise updates, advocacy of sensitive care, challenging of harmful practices, exposure to relevant complementary health fields, encouragement of professional morale, and professional inspiration.
