This unique conference brings together clinicians and researchers from all disciplines and women’s organisations who have a shared interest in the health problems women experience after pregnancy.
Papers and discussions will be focused on the theme ‘Minding Mothers with Morbidities’ including presentations on women’s postpartum health problems, and successful prevention, health promotion and treatment strategies.
Studies relating to the health of women before pregnancy are also welcomed when pregnancy and/or childbirth-related benefits are demonstrated.
The conference’s four (4) sub-themes are
- Mothers with Morbidities – who are they and who stays healthy and morbidity-free?
- Health-seeking & self-help behaviours – what do women do to get help?
iii. Health promotion and prevention strategies – what does and doesn’t work?
- Treatments – what does and doesn’t work?
