GOLD Lactation Conference News

Midwive Alliance North America

We’re thrilled to have a brand new partnership with the Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA). MANA conferences are exciting and educational events that advance maternal and infant care by connecting midwives with leading experts in the field. GOLD Learning’s online format makes learning with MANA easier than ever!

Since 1982, MANA has been bringing together midwives from all types of backgrounds to create strength and solidarity among midwives in North America. MANA believes that midwives are essential in delivering high quality maternity care and the organization works to make midwifery care accessible to families. MANA aims to address health disparities, promote evidence-based midwifery, and improve perinatal care.

MANA’s annual conference offers an excellent opportunity for professional development with top speakers and diverse delegates. Presentations cover a wide variety of topics of interest to midwives interested in continuing their education, improving client care, and learning about the latest advocacy developments.

Now, GOLD Learning has made MANA conferences even more accessible by making conference recordings available online. For those who are unable to attend in person or for those who might want to watch presentations again, the new online format brings learning to you. Whether at home, at work or on the go, recordings are available to watch and rewatch at your convenience throughout the access period.

The 2016 MANA conference presentations are now available and can be purchased as a bundle. Presentation topics include shared decision-making, research on homebirth safety, health inequities and much more. Presentations are available to view immediately upon purchase, and presenter handouts are available to download. This conference package includes 11 individual presentations with an available 13 CE hours.

MANA members enjoy exclusive discounts on GOLD Learning items including GOLD conferences, webinars, and education in the Learning Lecture Library as well as recordings from MANA conferences.
