The Slovenian Association of Perinatal Medicine (ZPMS) is an independent and autonomous professional association that operates within the Slovenian Medical Association (SZD). The organization consists of physicians from various specialties of maternal-fetal medicine, specialists and residents in gynaecology and obstetrics, neonatology, paediatrics and anaesthesiology, who are all involved in perinatal healthcare in order to ensure the health of pregnant women, parturients, infants, and neonates. Associate members of the association also include doctors and specialists from other disciplines related to perinatal medicine, as well as midwives and nurses.
The Association is the successor of the Section for Perinatal Medicine of the Slovenian Medical Association and thus continues the tradition of the Medical Reading Association in Ljubljana, established on 28 October 1861, which was renamed as the Association of Doctors in Carniola on 22 December 1862, the Slovenian Medical Association on 2 November 1918, and finally, the Slovenian Medical Association – Union of Medical Associations on 16 May 1980 at its General Assembly.
The main objectives of the association are:
maintaining and improving the level of perinatal healthcare in Slovenia,
preserving the role and importance of the medical profession, the role of doctors as intellectuals in Slovenian and international society, and thus ensuring the highest quality and ethics in the provision of medical services to the patients under their care; and
preserving the role and importance of the midwifery profession in Slovenian and international society.
