HMHB 2016

Perinatal Services BC's second biennial conference Healthy Mothers and Healthy Babies: Advances in Clinical Practice and Research Across the Continuum was held in Vancouver on March 11-12, 2016.

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

With over 330 participants, the conference engaged health care professionals from a wide range of disciplines in knowledge transfer and interprofessional collaboration that they can apply in their own practice to provide the best care possible and ensure healthy mothers and babies.
