We are a national resource on the history of Australian midwifery and the Australian College of Midwives

We promote an appreciation and understanding of midwifery & childbirth history to the profession and public

Our primary goal is to preserve, protect & promote the history of midwifery in Australia

We make our professional history & our history research VISIBLE, SHARABLE, ACCESSIBLE by identifing relevant archive materials, and promote their preservation & accessibility through the production of online resources such as

  • a website to act as a central repository to scaffold and map resources
  • an online digital collection for displaying objects & artefacts, and
  • an online library and research database

We provide a supportive network for those working on the history of midwifery & childbirth in Australia & develop appropriate interdisciplinary links, by creating & holding a space where we share knowledge, information, and resources
