About the Conference:

The SWAPS is the only conference in the South West of the UK that focuses solely on perinatal topics. Only in its 6th year, it has developed a reputation for quality and value for money and was attended by more than 200 delegates every year. The conference aims to bring together professionals from obstetrics, midwifery, paediatrics, neonatal and allied specialties to share best practices and recent advances in this rapidly progressing area of clinical care. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for continuing medical education to all professionals at an affordable cost.

The conference is hosted by the Faculty of Neonatal Medicine, Obstetrics and Midwifery, Swansea Bay University Health Board Department of Neonatology, ABMU Health Board and supported by Obstetric and Midwifery colleagues on the organising committee.  The conference attracts eminent speakers from all over the UK and abroad.The Inaugural conference in 2015 was held at the historic Sketty Hall in the beautiful coastal City of Swansea. In 2016, the conference moved to a bigger and dedicated conference halls of the Liberty Stadium, home to Swansea City Football Club.
