Featuring Keynote Speaker Robin Lim
The Midwives Alliance is proud to welcome our esteemed Keynote Speaker, Robin Lim. "Mother Robin" or "Ibu Robin" is a midwife and founder of Yayasan Bumi Sehat (Healthy Mother Earth Foundation) health clinics, which offer free prenatal care, birthing services and medical aid to anyone in need. She and her team have been working since 2003 to combat Indonesia's high maternal and infant mortality rates, and the Bumi Sehat birth centers serve many at-risk mothers.
In 2011 Robin Lim was named the CNN Hero of the Year by the Cable News Network (CNN) for providing thousands of low-income women in Indonesia with healthy pregnancy and birth services. Always with her finger solidly on the pulse of current events, Ibu Robin will be opening the conference with her address on Birth in the Era of Climate Change. In addition to her opening talk, she'll present a keynote address, Awakening Birth, on Saturday, and on Friday a breakout session entitled Placenta: the Forgotten Chakra.
