New Zealand College of Midwives Biennial National Conference

Thursday 02 – Saturday 04 November 2023

Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre

We are excited to welcome you to Ōtautahi Christchurch for  Te Kāreti o ngā Kaiwhakawhānau ki Aotearoa | New Zealand College of Midwives Biennial National Conference.

This conference is created and designed for New Zealand midwives but is inclusive to all those involved in maternity care.

November in Christchurch is special. When the daffodils begin to bloom and the blossoms line the avenues, with warmer weather the city is ON SHOW. Fondly renowned for hundreds of parks and gardens, Christchurch is the perfect place to visit and explore throughout Spring.

Diary the dates, plan to attend, learn, network and most of all have fun with colleagues within the midwifery sector.

Venue – Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre

Te Pae Christchurch is the world-class purpose-built venue for Te Kāreti o ngā Kaiwhakawhānau ki Aotearoa | New Zealand College of Midwives Conference. Centrally located in the city (within easy walking distance to accommodation options), opening to the river on one side and a central city park, there is plenty to do outside of the conference venue, but still appreciate the connection with nature.
