I am a second year midwifery student and would like to attend the conference! Would I need a consumer or professional ticket? 🙂
Hi Becky, students should select the Consumer tickets. Hope to see you there.
Hello! Looking forward to this!!!
I guess I need the professional ticket? I’m a Hypnobirthing practitioner. I want to register for the points. Could you please advise how many the conference brings? Thanks
yes a professional ticket would be correct.
The Conference has been approved as a professional activity by the Midwifery Council of New Zealand and allocated five (5) professional activity points.
See you there 🙂
