Midwifery Today Conference
Mount Laurel, New Jersey • April 18–22, 2018
“Love Is the Essence of Midwifery”
We would love for you to attend our conference in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. It will be a wonderful conference! We have some excellent classes and teachers bringing you many options. Many new speakers join us and many of your favorites are with us, as well. Our goal is, as always, to bring you knowledge, insight, and inspiration to help you be the best practitioner possible. We are part of the most beautiful calling being with motherbaby at this key time in both of their lives. What an honor. And what an honor it is to be with you for these days to share, learn, laugh, cry, and love.
We believe our theme “Love Is the Essence of Midwifery” is an important topic to explore. This calling takes all the love we have to give and then a bit more. We hope this conference will lift your spirit and give you the inspiration to go back out and help the mothers and babies you are called to serve. I also hope to see you enjoying the fantastic waterpark. We can practice waterbirth!

“Thank you so much for your amazing work. I had a wonderful time, felt very welcomed, and came out with a greater understanding of how midwifery can empower women.”
“I want to congratulate you all for facilitating and co-creating such a soulfully enriching, healing, inspiring experience. I felt so open to receiving everyone’s ideas, insight, wisdom and love, knowledge, and more. The elder/grandmother/father midwives were/are so generous in sharing with us their experiences in an open way. You all really came together in an-awe inspiring way. I deeply appreciate how approachable, loving human you all were/are.”
“After being on the midwifery path for six years or so … this is the first time, aside from very intimate circles, I have experienced the love, care, compassion and vision I’ve always thought midwifery encompassed. Thank you for providing opportunities for expansion, growth, love, global and individual healing, community, wisdom keeping, and more … you are loved and appreciated.”
