We're shaping the standards for what midwives need to know and be able to do in order to register with us and practise as a midwife in the UK.

We'd like to hear whether you think our new draft standards capture what a midwife should know and be able to do as well as the support they should be able to provide.

Your views will help shape the new standards and enable midwives to give better and safer care to all women, their babies, partners and families.

The consultation closes 9 May 2019.
