2020, the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, is definitely one that we will never forget. Catching the world by surprise and forcing us to stop and reboot, it has marked itself forever in the history books.

At Sensitive Midwifery, we’ve had to re-look at our year’s plans and our promises to our precious midwives. Innovation is what we live by so we’ve made the following adjustments to our yearly calendar:

  • The Flagship Sensitive Midwifery Symposium that was scheduled for 13 and 14 May 2020 has been postponed to 5 and 6 May 2021. The programme and the speakers will stay the same.
  • Meanwhile, we will be launching our first Online Certified Sensitive Midwifery Course in July this year. Head over to the Sensitive Midwifery Academy for more information.
  • The free national seminars that had been planned for the rest of the year will now be free online webinars. For more information, see below.

free sensitive midwifery webinar

Sensitive Midwifery always strives to go the extra mile and give midwives and related maternity professionals interesting information, innovative advisory techniques and empowering evidence. Thanks to our generous sponsors, we have added a free webinar to our 2020 programme. This online training offers delegates information quite different from that of the flagship Symposium programme in Johannesburg, which will be held 5&6 May 2021, so be sure to also register for the Sensitive Midwifery webinar by clicking the ‘Register Now’ button below.

who should attend the webinar?

The Sensitive Midwifery webinar is applicable to all basic-trained nurse-midwives working in any sector (independent practice, private and public hospitals, educational institutions; government sector), and those responsible for giving antenatal, postnatal, well-baby clinic and general parenting advice.

the symposium for all midwives and associated professionals

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.

sensitive midwifery accreditation

Sensitive Midwifery is a recognised educational brand in South Africa’s midwifery and nursing industry, considered by many to be one of the ‘big influencers’ of midwives and mothers. Sensitive Midwifery Academy is in the process of seeking accreditation as a CPD provider and has an internal CPD accreditation system, pending the formal points system in South Africa. Symposium presentation notes are included for each delegate, and certificates of attendance are granted to delegates who attend the full proceedings. Certain presentations will be available as podcasts or on video.

There is vast evidence to support the need for more midwife specialists
in South Africa and the world.

That’s why Sensitive Midwifery Academy is proud to offer to all midwives its new post-basic Certified Sensitive Midwife Course, which was successfully pioneered in the Eastern Cape.
