ICM has grown from a small group of Midwives Associations in Western Europe to a major Confederation with more than 116 autonomous associations from countries all over the world. By strengthening member associations, ICM advances the profession of midwifery globally promoting autonomous midwives as the most appropriate caregivers for childbearing women.
Koninklijke Nederlandse Organisatie van Verloskundigen
The Royal Dutch Organisation of Midwives (KNOV) was founded in 1889 and is an independent democratic organisation of 3300 midwives that represents most Dutch midwives in the Netherlands. The organisation advocates for midwives in the broadest sense of the wrod, is responsible for the registration of midwives and develops national midwifery guidelines.
