Registration is now open and delegates are warmly invited to reserve a place as soon as possible, in order to take advantage of the special price of just £100 (£50 concessions) including all day refreshments. Keynote speeches will be followed by oral presentations and posters selected from submitted abstracts.

Arri Coomarasamy (Trustee of Ammalife and Professor of Gynaecology at the University of Birmingham) says sharing knowledge to save mothers and babies across the world is a key component of academic research and clinical practice in the field reproductive health.

"Using research to make a difference is not just an add-on activity," he says. "It is our fundamental belief that we should be contributing in a really positive way to the communities of which we are a part."
