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. If you have meeting-related questions, please contact Nneka St. Gerard.
Hotel Information: All official Annual Meeting activities will take place the Gaylord Texan Resort near Dallas. The SMFM room block is now closed.

SMFM recommends booking directly with the Gaylord Texan to avoid housing scams. It has come to our attention that several companies inaccurately representing themselves as our "housing vendor" are contacting individuals in the SMFM community, soliciting business. Specifically, they will offer to make hotel reservations within the SMFM block on your behalf, or even offer a discount from the SMFM rate.
SMFM is not utilizing the services of this or any housing service for SMFM’s 40th Annual Pregnancy Meeting. Reservations for SMFM’s 40th Annual Pregnancy Meeting should be made directly with the hotel, either by phone or via our web reservation system. If you provide your credit card information to any of these unauthorized vendors, your card may be charged but you may not have a reservation when you arrive in Grapevine. This is a scam.
