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.

Symposium Guest Speakers

To be announced.

free national seminars

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 Symposium sponsors, we have added three free half-day seminars to our 2020 programme. These seminars offer delegates information quite different from that of the flagship Symposium programme in Johannesburg in May 2020, so be sure to also register for the Seminar closest to you.

who should attend the seminars?

These seminars are 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.
