The 40th Annual Pregnancy Meeting

The annual meeting of the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM), The Pregnancy Meeting™, will be held February 3–8, 2020 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Conference Center in Grapevine, Texas, near Dallas. The mission of the SMFM is to provide education and promote research that optimizes the health of high-risk pregnant women and their babies. The Annual Meeting is the centerpiece of SMFM's work, featuring postgraduate courses and workshops, luncheon roundtables, scientific forums, and poster presentations. It is the premier event for presenting and learning about cutting-edge science in obstetrics and provides participants the opportunity to connect with leaders and colleagues in maternal-fetal medicine.   

Submit an Abstract. The abstract submission process is now closed. We will call for late-breaking abstracts on October 11, 2019. If you plan to submit a late-breaking abstract for consideration, please note the following:

  • The research must be new and of sufficient scientific importance to merit special consideration after the standard abstract deadline. 
  • Abstracts should describe either large clinical studies or high-impact translational research that could not be completed prior to the original deadline.
  • Clinical studies must be prospective in design.
  • Late-breaking abstracts cannot be a revision of an abstract submitted prior to the submission deadline.
  • More information about the submission process will be available in October.
