Presentation proposals are now being accepted for the 2015 annual conference, Building on Tradition, Embracing the Future. This will be DONA International’s 2nd virtual, conference allowing doulas, childbirth educators, lactation consultants and anyone interested in maternal-child health from around the globe to learn together without the cost or time associated with travel. The conference will premiere on August 7 and 8, 2015, with sessions available for on-demand viewing until November 7th. Speaker submissions are due no later than March 15, 2015.

We know many of you have a wealth of knowledge and experience in matters of interest to birth and postpartum doulas. We are eager to have you share your expertise!

You do not have to be a DONA International member to present. Submissions are being accepted for 60 or 90 minute concurrent sessions which will be remotely recorded. A complete packet of information, including submission requirements and forms, is available at:

The more we can share with one another, the more we can stay informed and inspired!
