SOAP Presidential Message
The Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology (SOAP) was founded in 1968 by physician anesthesiologists with a subspecialty interest in the field of obstetric anesthesia and perinatology. This North American, physician-based subspecialty organization has a mission of improving pregnancy-related outcomes of women and neonates through the support of obstetric anesthesiology research, the provision of education, and the promotion of excellence in clinical anesthetic care.
