CANCELLATION POLICY

During the registration process, you can elect to purchase event insurance (only available to U.S. registrants).  If you purchased event insurance and need to cancel and file a claim, click here to be taken to the refund claim center.  

If you did not purchase event insurance or your reason for cancellation is not eligible for a refund through the event insurance provider, you may apply for a refund through AABC.  To be eligible for a refund, a notice of cancellation must be received two weeks (10 business days) before the conference by the AABC office (215.234.8068 | aabc@birthcenters.org). A 15% processing fee will be deducted from each refund.

 

CHILD CARE POLICY

Breastfeeding babies up to 6 months of age who remain quiet may attend sessions with their mothers. You may find it easier to have a support person accompany you to watch your baby outside the meeting between feedings. If you plan to bring your baby to the conference, please respect the needs and desires of other registrants and arrange care for your baby outside the room if he/she becomes disruptive (i.e. making noises – happy or sad).

 

EVENT CANCELLATION OR POSTPONEMENT

AABC reserves exclusive right to modify, postpone/reschedule or cancel programs for any reason, including but not limited to emergency, inclement weather or other 'acts of God'.  If there is an event cancellation, every attempt will be made to reschedule, and registration fees will be applied to the rescheduled event date.  Any travel, lodging, or incidental expenses incurred related to a cancelled event cannot be refunded under any circumstances.  If a cancelled event cannot be rescheduled, AABC will determine an equitable basis for the refund of a portion or all of the registration fees, after due consideration of circumstances and expenditures.
