CEUs: Continuing Education Credits have been applied for through MEAC and ACNM for all convention sessions. We are expecting to post CEU acceptance status for all sessions on this website prior to the convention, and they will also be included in the convention program book (if approved by the time of printing). You must pay the CEU fee of $30 with your registration in order to receive the CEU packet when you check in at the registration desk.

NARM EXAM: The NARM exam will no longer be offered during the conference. Please contact NARM at or 888-426-1280 to discuss testing options and locations.

Meals: Breakfast and lunch included Friday, Saturday and Sunday with full registration fee.

Scholarships: MANA, with support from the Foundation from the Advancement of Midwifery (FAM), will again be offering registration scholarships to attend the convention. Priority will be given to those who have not received a MANA scholarship in the past. If you intend to attend regardless of scholarship status, we recommend you register at the early bird discounted rate, and if you are subsequently awarded a scholarship, you will receive a full refund (excluding pre-convention workshops and extra ticket items, which are not covered by the scholarship fund). The deadline to apply was August 31--applications are no longer being accepted. Applicants will be notified by September 15.

Student Rate: A discounted convention rate of $350 is offered to students. To qualify, you must be actively involved in an apprenticeship with a practicing midwife or be attending midwifery school. A letter from your preceptor or school stating this relationship must be included with your registration.

Speaker Biographies: Read the speakers’ biographies on the “Speakers” tab.

Transportation: Refer to the hotel tab for details on airport transportation and parking on and offsite.

Refunds: A $50 processing fee will be retained for convention registration cancellations prior to October 9. After October 9, the fee will be $150, and no refunds will be offered after Wednesday, October 22. (St Louis area midwives called away to attend a birth will receive a partial refund, to be determined based on timing and expenses incurred by MANA, provided they notify the registrar as soon as possible.)
