Dear friends,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to MOM Symposium 2022, a one of a kind event in Armenia!

This symposium is not to be missed for two reasons. First, world renowned birth experts and activists are coming to town. The 92-year old legendary Michel Odent, a French obstetrician who impacted the field on a world scale, is coming to Armenia. Those who know him can’t believe they’ll meet him in person. Those of you who do not know him, you sure should seize the chance to hear him speak.

Other iconic speakers will come together with our local and diaspora Armenian professionals and exchange cultural perspectives on birth and systems of maternity care.

The second reason why you should not miss MOM symposium is because it is the first ever holistic discourse that covers birth from a different paradigm — birth as a normal, natural and physiologic life event.

We promise, you will long talk about this historic symposium and may use this knowledge in your personal and professional lives. These speakers shaped whole paradigms and we are positive that they will impact you, too!

We hope that you will take this unique opportunity and attend the 2022 MOM annual symposium.
