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 harmful practices, exposure to relevant complementary health fields, encouragement of professional morale, and professional inspiration.
Each year, the Sensitive Midwifery Symposium has a unique flavor with its own theme which become part of our slogans we live by, such as ‘Lead where you are’, ‘Midwifery Movement Matters’ and ‘Better Together’. We are so excited to announce the theme for 2024:
Empowered through Knowledge
It is now more than ever important that Midwives take their full place and bring back the beautiful art of true midwifery. We are empowered through knowledge, which leads to expertise, respect, and independence. Be(come) the midwives of the future.
