MAWS Conferences and Special Events

Every spring and fall we hold conferences for midwives, doulas, nurses, doctors and other birth professionals. The topics and themes of these conferences are based on current developments in the field of midwifery and the feedback of our members’ yearly survey. Our diverse speakers are professionals in their fields, bringing you the latest research and relevant information.

If you are interested in speaking at one of our conferences, or have a suggestion for a speaker/topic, please contact our Conference Chair at conference@washingtonmidwives.org

Our conferences are also a great place to meet other professionals and network. Attendees have the opportunity totalk to field related companies and get information from businesses that are there to improve your practice. We welcome a wide variety of sponsors and vendors. If you are interested in being a vendor or sponsor at our conference, please also contact our Conference Chair at conference@washingtonmidwives.org
