“The 8th International Black Midwives and Healers Conference (BMHC) will take place October 19-21, 2012 at the Newport Beachside Resort in Miami Beach, Florida. For the eighth time, the International Center for Traditional Childbearing (ICTC) will convene midwives, doulas, birth workers and healers from around the globe to explore cultural traditions and best practices in the care of pregnant, birthing and postpartum mothers.”
EYE!!! CAN’T!!! WAIT!!!
Are you familiar with ICTC? Click the link and find out more. If you follow me on twitter you may know that since Thursday I have been playing hostess and participating in the New Orleans ICTC Full Circle Doula Training. It has been a wonderful experience and it has gotten me all excited about going to Miami. In addition to the doula training, I am also working on my submission/proposal to be a speaker at the 2012 conference and that has me excited as well.
In 2010 I had the pleasure of not only attending, but actually being a presenter during the 7th BMHC, in Long Beach California. Now THAT was a great experience. Here are a few nuggets from the 2010 conference.
Have YOU ever wanted to be a presenter at a conference? Are you thinking of attending the ICTC BMHC in October? Do you have some information you want to share with others that you know will help women and babies? If you answered yes to any of those questions… you should answer the Call for Papers to speak at the 2012 Conference. Time is of the essence. Submissions are due June 1st. Take a look at the Call for Proposals and be a speaker at the 8th International Black Midwives and Healers Conference: Returning Power to Birth: Reclaiming Our Culture.
Don’t want to be a presenter. Just join in the fun, culture, learning and experience ICTC up close and personal. I look forward to seeing you in Miami!!
In Birth and Love
