MAWS Conferences and Special Events

Registration is open!

Join us in Auburn, WA for our 2018 Conference. Registration is open! Click here to register.

Every year we hold a conference 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.

This year we're also hosting a screening of Why Not Home? on Thursday evening after workshops are over. This screening is open to the public and benefits MAWS. Invite your friends! Click here to register.

If you are interested in speaking at one of our conferences, or have a suggestion for a speaker or 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 to talk 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
