Family Medicine conference in Vancouver

I’m just back from the 23rd Obstetrics Update for Family Physicians  in Vancouver. I gave the keynote speech (How Did Humans Come to Give Birth Like This? The Evolution of Human Childbirth) and another titled Inside Looking Out: A Baby’s View of Childbirth. About 300 people attended, and it was an excellent conference overall.

Interesting how differently things are approached in Canada. Home births are integrated into the larger maternal-child care system, to cite one example. And nobody yelled at me about evolution. Very refreshing!

Still waiting on the Home Birth Consensus Summit statement to be released. Should be out in the next day or two. I’ll have a lot more to say about that after release.
