Kate Evans
Author, activist and cartoonist Kate Evans reads from her ground breaking graphic guide to birth, Bump: how to make, grow and birth a baby.

Beverley Turner
Through her uniquely public but also personal perspective, birth junkie, broadcaster and journalist Beverley Turner will discuss the most pressing questions that she feels the maternity world must answer.

Andrew Weeks and Amanda Burleigh
Consultant Obstetrician/Professor of International Maternal Health Care at the University of Liverpool and and the 2015 Midwife of the year will provide practical solutions to optimising cord clamping, even for premature babies and those who require resuscitation at birth.

Toni Harman
Award-winning documentary filmmaker Toni Harman takes us behind the scenes of her filmaking of the past couple of years and presents the latest research on the infant microbiome.  What critical information does every parent and birth professional need to know to best protect it?

Shawn Walker
Midwife and breech birth expert Shawn Walker puts the case for a contemporary approach to breech education which begins by nurturing a strong conceptual understanding of ‘normal for breech’ physiology. This presentation builds on a similar talk given at the first Amsterdam Breech Conference earlier this year.

Natalie
