My Future, My Midwife
Transforming midwifery care for everyone
In communities everywhere, it’s a basic human right of every single woman, baby and family to experience the best and safest care possible during pregnancy, birth and postnatally.
As the professional regulator of more than 40,000 midwives across all four countries of the UK, that’s our expectation, that’s what we are striving for because that’s what people simply deserve – now, and for the future.
We’re proud to celebrate the launch of new, transformational midwifery standards that will equip midwives of the future with the knowledge, skills, values and behaviours to meet women’s changing and often complex, individual needs and choices.
