Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology (SOAP)
SOAP was founded in 1968 to provide a forum for discussion of problems unique to the peripartum period. SOAP is comprised of anesthesiologists, obstetricians, pediatricians, and basic scientists who share an interest in the care of the pregnant patient and the newborn.
The mission of the Society is to promote excellence in research and practice of obstetric anesthesiology and perinatology. Through the newsletter, Internet site, and annual meetings, SOAP allows practitioners of several specialties to meet and discuss clinical practice, basic and clinical research, and practical professional concerns.
A membership in SOAP is an opportunity to meet people who share your interests, and to stimulate improvements in health care for pregnant patients.
