Welcome Message from Organizing Committee

After the post-COVID-19 normalization, the Hong Kong Midwives Association endeavours to hold the International Normal Labour and Birth Research Conference (the Conference) in 2024. The theme of the Conference is “Shaping the Future of Normal Birth”. We aim at facilitating and promoting a mother and infant friendly community for childbearing and childbirth through strengthening the physiologic maternity care framework and excelling in the midwifery practice.


To make the conference fruitful, we intend to invite renowned scholars and clinical experts worldwide to provide keynotes, talks and workshops. These renowned speakers will bring in their international insights and perspectives with the latest knowledge of promoting and enhancing normal birth, protecting mothers from domestic violence, infant care and nutrition, as well as global policy in midwifery.


To strengthen multidisciplinary collaboration and teamwork, we have invited the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology of the Chinese University of Hong Kong to be the collaborating organisation. Supporting organizations include but not limited to the College of Midwives, the Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Society for Public Health Nursing, the Hong Kong Academy of Nursing and Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative Hong Kong Association, etc.

Looking forward to seeing you in Hong Kong in October 2024.
