Welcome to the Midwifery Council of New Zealand

2020 International Year Of The Midwife

Ka nui ngā mihi mahana ki a koutou. Haere mai ki te tatau o te whare kahu. Warm Pacific greetings and welcome to our website. We invite you to learn more about midwifery in New Zealand and the role the Midwifery Council plays in protecting the health and safety of women and babies during pregnancy, childbirth and during the first six weeks after baby is born.

The Council offices are closed but all staff are working remotely at this time and have access to all technological resources. Please continue to phone and email as normal.

All practising certificate card orders have been made however it is very unlikely that those ordered in the last week will be delivered. Midwives, managers and women are reminded that the most accurate source of information about a midwife’s practising certificate status is the online register, which can be accessed from this home page.

The Council would like to acknowledge the work that midwives are undertaking and the challenges that they are currently facing, as they respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
