WELCOME TO ECIC 2017
The 3rd European Congress on Intrapartum Care
25 – 27 May 2017
Following on the successes of the previous editions of the European Congress on Intrapartum Care (ECIC) – Making Birth Safer, we are delighted to welcome you to the third edition – ECIC 2017 – in the beautiful city of Stockholm.
Jointly organised by the European Association of Perinatal Medicine and the European Midwives Association, this congress constitutes a unique opportunity for all healthcare professionals working in the labour ward to meet each other, share their ideas and experiences, and obtain updated information on key aspects of clinical care. The congress is strongly focused on evidence-based practice and aims to promote excellence in all aspects of labour management. It endorses the visions of safe and respected birth, genuine teamwork in the labour ward, and provision of a positive birth experience to all women.
The congress is held within the famous Karolinska Institutet, home of the Nobel prizes and more than 200 years of history in development of the Medical sciences. Stockholm spreads out over 14 islands and is particularly famous for its grand public buildings and palaces, beautifully preserved old town, fine gothic churches, and cosmopolitan city atmosphere. All the conditions will be present for you to enjoy a unique scientific, social and cultural experience.
