What last year attendants said?

"Today has most definitely prompted me to think about my communication practice as a professional. I feel much more aware of how I would possibly be able to promote communication needs and to provide a holistic and individualised care to deaf parents on their journey into parenthood."

"It has really opened my eyes and raised awareness of maternity services and the inequalities that Deaf people face when they access health services."

"I have made learning sign language as a long term goal in my personal development portfolio. I would like to increase my knowledge further."

"Informative, interesting and stories were inspirational."
