Midwifery and Dying Conference
In early 2020, Soulfull Collective will host the 1st South African Conference on Midwifery and Dying. This two-day gathering is an opportunity to draw together the many conversations, knowledge, resources and best practices with regard to supporting people in a holistic manner at the end of life or in the event of sudden death. The conference is for aspiring and practising end of life doulas, nurses and those in the caring professions, including bereavement counsellors, as well as anyone who is interested in engaging in the topic of death in dying in a thoughtful and curious manner. Together we’ll create a calm and nurturing retreat space that will inspire and nourish and throughout the conference we’ll explore opportunities to collaborate in helpful ways.
It is extremely important to us that the presenters and delegates who participate in the conference are as diverse as possible. For this reason, the cost to paying delegates of R2,200 for the two-day conference includes full sponsorship for one person who does not have the financial and social resources to be able to pay or to raise funding (for example a home based carer or a public sector nurse).The people who have launched projects below are seeking to raise funding so that they can attend the conference together with such a person. Thank you for helping us to build a movement that is mindful, compassionate and inclusive.
We encourage those for whom this amount might be prohibitive to reserve your place at the conference in the meantime by registering a crowdfunding campaign on our conference page at BackaBuddy as soon as possible and to use this medium to raise the conference cost by 31 January 2020. Paying delegates can elect to sponsor someone they know or the organisers can connect you to inspiring caregivers who need support.
Registration closes on 1 February 2020 and an early bird discount of 15% i.e. R1,870 is applicable for the first 15 payments (made via EFT or using backabuddy). To register, please click here to complete an online form.
