Here are some final details about the upcoming 2017 West Virginia MotherBaby Summit. We are expecting 75 maternity leaders and community partners from the state.
The 2017 West Virginia MotherBaby Summit: Tackling the Ten Steps will be held on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at the Holiday Inn and Suites. The address is Charleston West/400 Second Avenue, Charleston, West Virginia.
Registration opens at 7:30 am and runs until 8:30 am. Our program will start on time at 8:30 am and we will run on time throughout the day.
Parking is available right outside the Holiday Inn.
You need to be registered to attend. If you are registered and something comes up and you can’t attend, you certainly are encouraged to send someone else in your place from your hospital or group. The new person needs to be able to tell us who they are substituting for.
We are offering nursing and social work educational credits as well as IBLCE CERP educational credits. The rules regarding these hours are strict. We cannot give out either certificate of proof of attendance until after the Summit concludes and that will be at 3:45pm. There can be no exceptions to this. Also, to get the certificate(s) you will need to hand in your evaluation form so please be completing it as the day progresses. (We have to submit a summary of the evaluations for the certifying groups.)
The room can sometimes be chilly; we suggest you bring an extra sweater.
We will have a breastfeeding pumping room available for all attendees.

We look forward to a great day and advancing the maternity care for mothers and babies. We all benefit when moms and babies have the opportunity to breastfeed.
Please drive safely.
