The Birth and Beyond Conference is "not your typical birth conference."  It is an experience.  It is a place where you can not only learn and network, but also rejuvinate yourself and your love of caring for babies, moms and families.  

2014 will again bring to London, Ontario those in the fields of pre- and post-natal care, birth, and breastfeeding. We will be welcoming back many of the same speakers who joined us in 2012 and 2013 and are adding some new faces to the lineup.  We will also welcome familiar faces of those who have attended past conferences and meet new friends in 2014.

We are happy to introduce the Birth and Beyond Conference "On the Road" Education Series in 2014.  These smaller education sessions will bring the relaxed and welcoming feel of the Birth and Beyond Conference to various locations across Canada.  We are excited to bring some of our favourite speakers to you!

We will welcome midwives, doctors, doulas, nurses, lactation consultants, and anyone with an interest in birth and breastfeeding, who will have the ability to get to know the speakers through a variety of talks, workshops, and social events.

What People Are Saying About the 2013 Birth and Beyond Conference:

  • Thank you SO much for putting on a fabulous conference last week! You and your team did a wonderful job! What’s best is that when you go to many seminars, I feel like you often have a “Jaccuzzi Experience” meaning that at the time, it feels great but days and weeks afterwards, nothing really feels different. After this seminar I feel that my team and I have returned to care for clients with many new tid bits of knowledge that will have a positive impact on the care they receive and in turn, their pregnancy, birth and parenting experience. THANKS to YOU and the awesome presenters! - 2013 conference attendee
  • Shawn and Melanie brought the best ever birth conference we have ever been to to London this past week. Their awesome team and their hard work absolutely blew the doors off any other birth conference we have ever attended and this sentiment was echoed by so many of the participants. People attended from all over the world and concurred that this was the best birth conference ever - hands down. - Babies Naturally of London, Ontario
  • I am grateful for all the hard work, energy and time that was put into this conference and all of the brilliant sessions, presenters, panels and participants. After feeling defeated for longer than I can remember, now I am rejuvenated. And that is a gift. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. - 2013 conference attendee
  • The whole experience was just inspiring, enriching and energizing. I believe the connections I made here will be life changing. - 2013 conference attendee
