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 harmful practices, exposure to relevant complementary health fields, encouragement of professional morale, and professional inspiration.
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 the Flagship Sensitive Midwifery Symposium that was originally scheduled for 13 and 14 May 2020, will now be a VIRTUAL Symposium. The Symposium will be held on the 5 & 6 of May 2021 and you will have lifetime access to entire program recordings!
