Education

Submit a Poster Presentation Before January 21!

 

In our 2018-2021 Strategic Action Plan, we have set out to demonstrate the positive birth outcomes of Lamaze education by supporting research into this topic, but we need your help!

  • Do you have new research or a case study that relates to the field of childbirth education, or that would impact childbirth education in theory or practice? 
  • Have you identified a problem in your community and implemented an evidence-based initiative to address it?

We are eager to hear from you at LamazeLIVE! 2019.  Submit your work in one of the following categories to showcase your findings and get feedback from colleagues. 

  • Breastfeeding
  • New and emerging research in the field of childbearing
  • Partner education
  • Postpartum health
  • Other

Submissions are due January 21.

These posters will not require a formal podium presentation, but will require a full-size poster be designed, printed and hung at the event.
