The ICM Americas Regional Conference took place in Asuncion, Paraguay from 7-9 November and brought 358 delegates from North, South and Central America to collaborate, present, share and connect as a unified network of midwives. 

The Conference was a resounding success. Dr. Julio Mazzoleni, Minister of Public Health and Social Welfare of Paraguay welcomed the conference attendees and eloquently affirmed the importance of midwives coming together from diverse backgrounds to serve the needs of women and newborns, support one another as midwives and make a positive impact on the world.

The ICM President, Franka Cadee and regional Board Members, Sandra Oyarzo Torres and Emmanuelle Herbert, welcomed delegates and formally opened the conference. President of the co-host, Asociación de Obstetras del Paraguay (AOP), Sandra Lopez, also welcomed participants.
