Leading specialists from the UK and overseas will discuss the most important and common medical problems which complicate pregnancy, delivery and the puerperium. The management of medical disorders which pre-date pregnancy, as well as those arising during pregnancy, will be covered. This is a valuable meeting for both consultants and trainees and provides the theoretical element of the RCOG ATSM in Maternal Medicine.

3rd European Spontaneous Preterm Birth Congress

16-18 May 2018

Edinburgh, UK

The main aim of the ESPBC is to give the international community in the field of spontaneous preterm birth the opportunity to exchange current knowledge and get updates on the latest findings. We aim to stimulate scientific discussion and interaction, and anticipate that trainees, midwives and students will be well represented amongst the delegates. There will be plenty of opportunities for free communication. With a vibrant social program and plenty of networking opportunities we hope to create an environment where new connections can be made, and new ideas can flourish.
