The conference is being organised by local volunteers, birth workers and doulas, at the Royal United Hospital Bath, which aims to be educational and inspiring.
NCT and antenatal campaigner, co-chair Noreen Hart told the Bath Chronicle: “The day will provide an opportunity for us to all listen and reflect upon the latest research and experiences of all birth advocates and shift the focus towards the needs and choices of the individual birthing woman.”
Speaking at the conference will be Richard Porter, who has worked as a consultant obstetrician since 1989, and has become well-known for his strong support for midwife units and homebirth.
The ‘Whose birth is it anyway?’ conference will be held in the postgraduate centre at the Royal United Hospital Bath, Saturday 17 October 2015.
Tickets cost £64 per person, which will include a light lunch, refreshments during the day, workshops and a goody bag.
RUH Trust Midwives can attend the conference for £55 and student midwives are welcome for £35.
