Birth Right Banner Final

Join us in Kona, Hawaii August 21-23 as we explore the heritage of birth and health, not only in the region but also across the world. Experts with experience in both local and remote settings will share their wisdom and knowledge with us through breakout sessions as well as in corporate meeting times. We will look at the state of midwifery and childbirth, examine our role and purpose as birth workers, and seek clarity on the design of birth and how to empower the women we serve. All of this and more will be shared against the backdrop of beautiful Kona, Hawaii at the University of the Nations campus. Space is limited, so be sure and reserve your seat early.
