    Hello! I would love to see an education session on billing and coding at this year’s conference in Chicago. This is a topic that is paramount in any practice to keep our doors open. I would love to have an opportunity to learn this better and in an environment that is focused on midwifery care and practices.

      Hi Jennifer,

      Thanks for letting us know. Billing and Coding is a subject that we usually focus on in our Midwifery Works! conferences. (They focus a great deal on the business of midwifery.) Midwifery Works! is usually held in the fall, and we’ll have information available about the upcoming one soon. All best, Maura
