The main responsibility of the Midwifery Council of New Zealand is to protect the health and safety of women and babies during pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal period by ensuring that midwives are competent and fit to practise midwifery.
The Midwifery Council took over the responsibility for the regulation of midwives from the Nursing Council of New Zealand on the 18th September 2004.
