How Birth works

ARM National Conference 2020

November 14th, 2020, Nottingham
Do you think you know ‘How Birth Works?’ Be prepared to be challenged, amazed and educated about the anatomy and physiology of the birthing body and processes of birth. We need to know the intricate anatomy and the complex dance of hormones and biomechanics of birth if are to help make birth as safe as it can be for mother and baby. Come join us to learn more about birth, and to share your knowledge too – we learn from each other.

About How Birth Works

The exquisitely balanced neurohormonal and biomechanical interplay that takes place during physiological labour and birth is as much a part of evidence based maternity care as is the latest randomised trial. This day provides a rare opportunity to reconnect with what we were taught as students, but what we often forget in busy clinical practice.

Pricing &  Registration

We don’t want big corporate sponsors because we need to keep our values intact as a charity. So we rely on ticket sales to fund our conference. We’re grateful that every single speaker and workshop facilitator offers their talents for no fee. We keep our prices as low as possible and offer subsidised places for students and those on low incomes. Any surplus will go towards our campaign or the Midwives’ Haven.
