"The organisers should be congratulated for hosting such an exceptional meeting. Speakers were outstanding and the relaxed, non-intimidating, warm environment set the scene for a truly unique conference. All healthcare professionals involved in the care of women and their unborn babies uniting together to make a difference. I will try!!"
"It's been an exceptional conference. All the speakers are truly inspiring. Thoroughly amazed with the work of the organisers, remarkable effort. I've enjoyed it so so much and can't wait for the next GOU. Loved the gala dinner as well, loved the trivia, the singing and dancing... Really enjoyed the overall very positive energy of the conference.
