Supporting midwifery beyond our borders

The RCM understand the practice of midwifery in the UK does not exist in isolation and we have always sought to work with and support midwives all over the world. Many of our members are actively engaged in global midwifery, and we believe that our expertise should support the development of the profession of midwifery globally to ensure sustainable development for all.

The RCM contributes to the development of global midwifery through the following activities:

  • Advocacy
  • Member representation globally
  • Providing technical expertise
  • Engaging in capacity building
  • Consultancy
  • Supporting our members in global midwifery
