The Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine gathers each winter for The Pregnancy Meeting to share the latest innovations in research and clinical care. Through educational seminars and research presentations, we bring together MFMs in training, practicing clinicians and veterans in the field. We invite you to join us to share your clinical wisdom, your original research, and your passion for improving outcomes for mothers and babies.Oral and Poster Presentations in 2019
2,020 abstracts received - Top 109 accepted for Oral Presentations and 950 as Poster Presentations; more presentations than ever! Abstracts can be found in the January supplement of AJOG
.SMFM strives to be inclusive and to meet the needs of our members. In response to feedback from 2018 Annual Meeting attendees, we are expanding resources for families at The Pregnancy Meeting™ in 2019.
- Childcare Services: For the first-time ever, we are offering childcare services at the Annual Meeting. This is a pilot program, sponsored by UT Health McGovern Medical School and subsidized by SMFM. It is limited to 18 children per hour on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration will be open until January 11, 2019. To register for childcare, please click here. For more details about how this will work, please see our FAQ document.
- Nursing Mother's Room: Baby-wearing and feeding is welcome throughout The Pregnancy Meeting™. For those who prefer a private space, we will have a room dedicated for mothers to pump or feed children. For the first time ever, we will also use the Nursing Mother's Room as a place to soothe a crying baby or just to burn off some energy for a rambunctious toddler.
- Connect with Other Families: Las Vegas local and SMFM President-Elect, Dr. Brian Iriye, has established a new online community to share things to do in Las Vegas. Join the community and he will begin to provide suggestions for family-friendly activities for those traveling with children. The community can also be used as a place to connect with other families, plan joint activities or swap babysitting services.
