Babies and Children: Infants in arms are welcome to attend with a registered parent. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer childcare at this location and cannot accommodate toddlers and older children.
Cancellation Policy: We understand that midwives sometimes can't attend scheduled events due to the uncertain nature of birthwork. Registrants who cancel by contacting event organizers via phone or email up to 48 hours before the start of the event will receive a full refund. Cancellations made less than 48 hours before the event or no call/no shows the day of the event will also be refunded $40 per single day of conference missed or $80 for both days, due to fixed costs associated with the conference.
Recorded sessions. We’ll be recording our sessions this year. If you miss a session due to being at a birth, you can take a pre-session quiz, listen to the recording and read the handouts and take a post-test and still receive CEUs.
