2024 AABC Birth Institute

The annual convention of the American Association of Birth Centers

Thursday, November 7, 2024
to Sunday, November 10, 2024

We invite you to gather with us for a time of community connection, learning and celebration at the 2024 AABC Birth Institute. Now in our 18th year, the Birth Institute is the only nation-wide convention for birth centers and midwifery, and it draws together a beautiful mix of more than 250 birth advocates from across the country – midwives, physicians, nurses, administrators, advocates, birth and reproductive care vendors  – everyone who keeps birth centers going.

This year we will savor the fall colors and views of the Mississippi River with a chain of surrounding lakes, all within walking distance of the vibrant and bustling downtown scene in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

You can expect learning sessions catering to all of birth center professionals, a robust exhibit hall, birth center tours, and a festive night of fun at the AABC Foundation Gala to Grow Birth Centers. 

We invite you to join us!
