Yesterday we, the institute of Health and Care Sciences arranged a conference on maternity care in Sweden. We left the conference with new energy and challenges towards further improvements of maternity care. The conference was an activity within the EU COST network (ISO 907) aiming at identify and support optimal maternity care in Europe. Professor Soo Downe, the president of this Cost action, was a key speaker.
All participants made the conference so successful, and especially the speakers sharing their experiences: Ingela Lundgren, Ida Lyckestam, two mothers and one father, Eva-Marie Wassberg and Maria Hogenäs midwives at the `Birth House´, Ingegerd Hildingsson, and Ann Morris.
All you others participating in the conference, please share your impressions of it.
