HMHB 2014

Perinatal Services BC's inaugural conference Healthy Mothers and Healthy Babies: New Research and Best Practice was held in Vancouver on February 21-22, 2014.

The conference was an opportunity for health care professionals interested in the care of pregnant women and their newborns to be updated on new research and best practices across the continuum of perinatal and newborn care. 

The conference engaged health care professionals from a wide range of disciplines in knowledge transfer and interprofessional collaboration in order to provide the best care possible and ensure healthy mothers and babies. The format included plenaries, breakout sessions, and poster sessions.
