International Symposium of Obstetric care ISOC was conceived as an event that unites specialists from perinatal sphere who support and develop a humane approach to childbirth in different countries. Every year ISOC takes place in the different country. The purpose of the event is the integration of knowledge, skills and practices in such areas as human science, medicine, psychology, obstetrics, and their application in the accomplishment of motherhood and childhood. What makes this event different is orientation to the sphere of needs of the specific person and family in obstetrics and perinatology. Annually the topic of the ISOC is defined by the most pressing issues of perinatology. The event is of theoretical and practical nature. Choosing the clinic for the event is also defined by the principle of the humanity of providing the help. Our trips contribute to the development of the personal relationships between professionals, countries, clinics and patients. The idea of the #ISOC is to find solutions to the most important and acute questions in obstetrics.

Every ISOC takes place in a different country every year. This is a non-profit project.

In 2018, ISOC will take place in Moscow, Russia.
