Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology

The Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology (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 from around the world who share an interest in the care of the pregnant patient and the newborn.

The mission of our society is to advance and advocate for the health of pregnant women and their babies through research, education, and best practices in obstetric anesthesia care. Our vision is safe and equitable care for women and newborns everywhere. Our mission, vision and core values are at the forefront of everything we do as a society.

Membership in SOAP is an opportunity to meet people who share your interests and to stimulate improvements in health care for pregnant patients.
