Annual Conference

NAPSW presents a clinical conference every year; one of the largest gatherings of Perinatal Social Workers from across the United States and Canada. NAPSW supports the unique experience of perinatal social workers and facilitates connections among this outstanding group of professionals. We hope you will join us to learn many aspects of perinatal care from social work experts as well as other professionals. It is an excellent opportunity to meet perinatal colleagues, make valuable contacts, and earn CEUs.  NAPSW rotates the conference location to provide everyone a chance to attend.

Workshop A1 is now Perinatal Care for Transgender and Gender Diverse Patients, Hannah Fuller, BSW, MSW Candidate
Transgender and gender diverse patients have historically been marginalized within perinatal care settings. This presentation will address care considerations that support providers in their mission of being both an advocate and an ally for transgender and gender diverse individuals experiencing pregnancy.
The workshop previously listed in the A1 slot, Father Inclusive Prenatal Care: Co-parenting Support & Parental Education for Young Parents, has been moved to session D4 which will be held on Friday, May 6, 2022 1:15pm - 2:15pm.
