Given the rapid, unpredictable evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have no option but to move all of the upcoming IFMSS meetings forward, until a time when we can all travel and mingle safely.  

Hence, unfortunately, IFMSS 2020 was postponed.


​For those of you who had registered for IFMSS 2020, we are happy to reimburse all registration fees via your bank, unless you wish to transfer them to the next IFMSS meeting. 

If so, please contact Liz Gan with your bank details, so that we can expedite a bank to bank transfer.

Fax.: +1 (416) 586-5958


Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.


Diana Farmer & Shin Hirose (UC Davis), Peter Lindgren (Karolinska), myself and the IFMSS board have been in ongoing discussion about the impact of the pandemic on our upcoming IFMSS meetings.

We are also reviewing whether it may be wiser to hold a virtual meeting in 2021. We will keep you all posted.


I will circulate the dates for our next in-person IFMSS meeting as soon as these can be confirmed.  The location will almost certainly be the same and, we really look forward to welcoming you all to Ireland for some serious craic, which we will all be sorely in need of.


We will also run a separate Fetal Therapy course and a Fetal Medicine day as "bookends" to the main IFMSS meeting.


Please take good care of yourselves and your own in these difficult times.  All the best.


Greg Ryan
