We are proud to announce that our annual Born Into This conference will be back for its second run from June 6 to June 8, 2019.
This summer, we’ll host a community of 200 birth workers, holistic health professionals, thoughtful leaders and creators in Austin, Texas for three days of discovery, accountability, resource-sharing and skill-building.
Curated by DTI, each day of the conference explores social justice, entrepreneurship, technology and creativity. Centered in interdisciplinary thought, the conference aims to make sense of the birth world’s intersections and context, as well as its relationship to our own practice as members of the field. Together, we will learn and organize to better serve our professional development and collective wisdom.
Building off of last year’s inaugural conference, Born Into This 2019 will also introduce a few changes. This year, we’re including a third day of programming, accepting panel and speaker proposals from the community through Feb. 15 and accepting scholarship applications for waived general admission. General admission and deluxe tickets are now available.
