Maternal Birth Summit

“Prevention is Better Than Cure ! - Optimising Pregnancy Care and Delivery for Better Pelvic Floor Health”

The virtual ICS Melbourne 2021 Global Summit “ Prevention is better than cure” presents a range of mini-lectures by international experts related to the prevention and management of maternal childbirth pelvic trauma.

We hope that this begins a process, with feedback from delegates, that leads to a consensus agreed upon by societies such as ICS, FIGO and IUGA, and in Australia, RANZCOG, UGSA, the Australian College of Midwifery and the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
