International Confederation of Midwives


The International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) supports, represents and works to strengthen professional associations of midwives on a global basis.


At present ICM has 101 Member Associations in 90 countries including the RCM.

The ICM works with midwives and midwifery associations globally to secure women’s right and access to midwifery care before, during and after childbirth. They have worked alongside UN agencies and other partners for decades in global initiatives to help reduce the numbers of mothers and babies who die in and around childbirth, and evidence is growing that shows expanding midwifery care is one of the best ways to combat maternal mortality.


The drive for safer motherhood continues to gain strength as more women worldwide achieve access to midwifery care.
