Welcome to Global Midwifery Council
"Birth is a Human Rights issue and it is the strong foundation upon which every healthy society grows"

The Global Midwifery Council is an international organization of midwives and birth workers investigating birth and midwifery around the world.

The Council’s goal is to ensure that every woman receives safe and respectful midwifery care during childbirth.

The Global Midwifery Council seeks to help retain, establish or reestablish midwifery care around the world.

GMC will research and promote midwifery models that work to provide physiological, safe, humane, respectful, culturally-appropriate birthing care.

GMC works to strengthen midwifery education, continuing education and student access to an international network of midwives and supportive caregivers.
