Our speakers all work within the maternity services and between them encompass all aspects of birth - from the antenatal period through to the postnatal. From positive birth to trauma and the effects on the wider family. These speakers have a wealth of experience between them, years of professional development and multiple publications met with great success.

Each leg of the tour will encompass five speakers and you can be assured to gain in depth knowledge on a variety of birthing topics. And there’s no need to worry about missing a speaker...
