This year’s Mama Conference is being held in the vibrant city of Edinburgh, on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th September 2015.
Our venue is the Edinburgh Conference Centre in the very heart of the city with excellent transport links and accommodation choices close by.
At MAMA Conference we let the common theme of maternity run as our binding thread through our conference and hope that our diverse content appeals to a wide audience.
We have lined up another year of fabulous, inspirational and world-class expert speakers including
Ina May Gaskin, Dr Michel Odent; Dr Mary Ross-Davie; Professor Soo Downe, OBE; Geraldine Butcher, Consultant Midwife; Debbie Gould, Midwife and Author; Shawn Walker, Breech birth specialist; Professor Mary Nolan; Elizabeth Prochaska, Barrister; Dr Margaret McCartney; Professor Maria Iacovou; Gillian Smith & Jacque Gerrard, Directors for the RCM UK Boards in Scotland and England. Our 2014 Conference chair is the wonderful Sheena Byrom, OBE.
We know that Mama 2015 will again be a fantastic, inspirational and uplifting experience for every delegate, an experience that will send them away feeling recharged and reinvigorated.
MaMa Conference has a unique atmosphere that is more than just yet another conference on the annual calendar! Meeting, sharing knowledge and experience, learning from world class experts over two days, as well as being entertained and, socialising together in the evening and making new connections are the foundations of the MaMa Conference experience.
