International Conference on Homebirth
The conference, titled 'Homebirth – What Do We Know about It?', is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about homebirth. Its aim is to provide both professional and lay publics with missing information that will help them replace the grim image of homebirth with a truer picture supported by the experience of professionals from abroad and the results of research dealing with homebirths. In addition to the outcomes of scientific research in the field of homebirths, the conference will show the participants examples of good practice from different countries, providing them with up-to-date information on the legislative situation regarding births at home and offering alternative options for homebirth. Parents will also share their experience. Practical skills will be shared in workshops.
