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.

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 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, and all COVID-19 regulations will be adhered to. In order to reach all our Sensitive Midwives and reduce travelling where possible, we are proud to announce that the Flagship Sensitive Midwifery Symposium will be a VIRTUAL one at the same time! Start planning your watch parties with your colleagues! More information on cost and how to register will follow soon.

Furthermore, we decided to gather in Cape Town too for a one-day Symposium on the 14th October 2021.

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.
