Eugene, Oregon Conference 2021

It was with great sadness that we had to postpone the 2020 Eugene, Oregon, conference. Thankfully, it seems we may be rounding the corner on Covid-19,  so we are now tentatively planning to hold our Eugene conference in September 2021. This will give us enough time to make sure we can do it safely. We hope to be able to set the dates for this event and open it up for registration by July 1, 2021. Please watch this page for updates. Much love to our community.

We welcome you enthusiastically to our Eugene conference. Eugene is always a special event because it has been our hometown for our 33 years of existence. We have an incredible program with excellent speakers lined up for you. We are also offering many of the classes for the first time. We want to focus on gentle midwifery and birth because our field of expertise is too often co-oped by medicine. It is important for us to know who we are and who we are working for — that is, motherbaby and, indeed, the whole family. They need our love, care, and protection more than ever in these trying times. We want each mother and each baby to have the best birth possible, while keeping in mind their safety. This conference has something for everyone and you are welcome whether you are a midwife, doula, doctor, or other practitioner.

Speakers include:


  • Gentle Birth Is a Human Rights Issue
  • Hands on Breech Skills
  • Alternative Remedies
  • Low-Tech, No-Tech Birth
  • Gentle Brain Wiring in the Womb
  • Hemorrhage and Estimating Blood Loss

Travel to the Conference

By Car:
Please allow extra time for construction in the downtown area.

Driving north or south on Interstate 5, take exit 194B, “I-105, OR 126, West, Eugene.” Go west for about one mile. Take Exit 2, “Autzen Sta. / Univ. of Ore.” You are now on I-105 / OR 126.

Stay in right lane, and follow Exit 2 ramp; at this point the sign says “Coburg Rd. / Downtown.” Stay left where the exit ramp divides in two, following the “Downtown / Univ. of Ore.” signage. This puts you on Coburg Rd.

Stay in the right lane, cross the river and then take the exit marked “Downtown / Hult Center” (also marked “6th Ave.” exit). This puts you on 6th Avenue.

Stay or get in the right lane and go for several blocks. Immediately after going under a freeway overpass, turn right on Jefferson Street, then turn left on 5th Street. Drive just past Adams Street and immediately turn left into the church parking lot. If the church parking lot is full, there is free street parking in the area.

Please note that the church is a plain white building with a small sign on the Adams Street side.
