What makes The First 1000 Days Conference so special?

  • Our keynote speakers all have advanced training and experience in the perinatal field.  Delegates can opt to attend breakout sessions for a deeper understanding of particular topics.
  • The Conference offers the perfect educational opportunity to stay up to date on the latest research and best practice and importantly, receive CPD points for attendance.
  • To ensure all delegates can connect with other like-minded health professionals, a drinks session is planned at the end of the day and a longer lunch break is scheduled in the middle of the day.
  • Feedback from our past two Conferences has been extremely positive with many delegates saying they gained tremendous value from attending. Comments included: ‘Found a community of like-minded people that shared my passion. I was also informed about services that would be a great benefit in my practice’;  ‘As a midwife, I enjoyed learning about the research being done in this space’ and ‘I found the speakers and content to be very interesting and a great refresher’.
