Our mission is to provide accessible, authoritative and readable information for midwives, students and other professionals in the maternity services. We aim to demonstrate a holistic, ethical approach and our focus is on supporting normal birth and breastfeeding. We do not advertise formula milk products.

Established in 1998, The Practising Midwife is a peer reviewed journal available in print and online, offering comprehensive coverage of issues affecting midwives at every stage of their professional lives, providing you with opportunities to develop your skills and refresh you knowledge, to prepare for registration, professional appraisal and revalidation.
