GOLD Midwifery Conference News

GOLD Keynote Presentations are the perfect opportunity for those new to GOLD to check out a presentation at no cost, and for everyone to hear from a top speaker highlighting an important topic. We will have two live presentations of this keynote, and a recording will be available on the website until March 10.

Robin Lim has long been an impactful individual in the birthing world. Robin has brought care to numerous high-risk and impoverished mothers through her work as a midwife. Along with her hands-on work, she has authored numerous books and has worked tirelessly to support parental rights. In 2011, Robin was awarded CNN Hero of the Year for her work helping thousands of low-income mothers have safe pregnancies and births.

In her closing keynote presentation “Birth in the Era of Climate Change: Lessons learned in the Epicenter of Disasters”, Robin will share her thoughts on how midwives play a critical role in supporting communities facing disasters. At a time when the number of global disasters is expected to increase, this work is more important than ever. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear about Robin’s extensive experience as well as the insights she’s gained as a midwife and first responder in emergency situations.

Join us for this info-packed closing keynote on February 20 at 14:00 UTC and again at 24:00 UTC. A recording will also be available until March 10. Space is limited, reserve your seat today!
