The National Perinatal Association conducts an annual conference, which provides a forum for education, networking and learning.

As we enter the 21st century, the myriad of decisions surrounding the perinatal period have become increasingly complex for women and their healthcare providers.

With technology advancing at breathtaking speed and information available in ever-expanding formats, the need for multidisciplinary collaboration between women's health providers, pediatric specialists, policy makers, social workers, psychologists and patient advocates has never been greater.

The National Perinatal Association is at the forefront of such efforts, bringing together professionals from the entire healthcare spectrum in order to advance the health of women and newborns, inform public policy and promote family-centered care.

Our mission is simple: We convene. We educate. We advocate. And we integrate.
