Here in the US we are hoping to round the corner on Covid-19, so that we may resume many of our old plans that were interrupted by the pandemic. We are keeping an eye on the latest information. You, our community of birth practitioners and parents, have been in our hearts and minds, especially this past year, and we hope that you and all your loved ones are healthy and doing well. Midwifery Today takes Covid-19 and your safety very seriously.
We had postponed all of our conferences in 2020 and now intend to reschedule the same programs and venues, as well as new programs and venues, for later this year or next year. However, there may be some changes, such as teachers, depending on their availability. We are grateful for your patience and understanding as we get our conferences back up and running.
Currently, we are very excited about our Eugene, Oregon, conference. We can’t wait to see you! The dates are set for September 19–22, 2021, and we plan to follow the latest guidelines and information to keep everyone safe. The theme is Gentle Birth; Gentle Midwifery. For more information and to register, please visit the Eugene Conference web page: https://midwiferytoday.com/conference/eugene-oregon-2021.
Unfortunately, our plans for an international conference in the beautiful little town of Bad Wildbad, Germany, have been delayed yet again. We are hoping for 2022. Keep an eye on the Germany Conference web page for more information: https://midwiferytoday.com/conference/bad-wildbad-germany-conference-2022.
We are also looking even further into the future for Midwifery Today and hope to coordinate a conference in Greece! You can join our Greece Conference Facebook Group for updates here: facebook.com/groups/277948217018414. Keep up with all our conference updates on the main conference web page here: https://midwiferytoday.com/conferences.
Other than our conferences, we continue to publish our online magazine. We try to post at least one new article each week. Quarterly, we put all the articles together with a beautiful cover, along with the usual columns and departments that we had in the print magazine, and create a PDF. You can access articles with an Online Membership or through Back Issues (print or PDF formats).
We closed our office at the beginning of 2020 and everyone has been working from their homes. We are excited to resume our in-person staff meetings safely very soon.
Be assured that we are still committed to providing essential information on birth! You also can still order products from our store. It’s always a good time to further your education. In addition to the hundreds of online articles, we also have e-books that can be easily downloaded.
Please stay safe and keep the faith as we ride out Covid-19.
Toward Better Birth.
