About Our Members

Since 1922, ICM has brought together professional organisations of midwives across the world to unite and uplift each other to achieve ICM’s vision and mission. ICM provides member associations (MAs) with exclusive benefits, including professional development, networking, leadership and governance support. We help our MAs advocate for improvements to midwifery education, regulation and service provision. ICM also connects MAs in humanitarian situations to donors and support organisations.

We are the Global Voice of Midwives

ICM’s MAs are organised into six global regions. Currently, we have 139 MAs in 119 countries, representing over 1 million midwives globally. Learn more about our MAs by using the interactive map below. Hover over a pin to learn more about the MA.

With ICM’s support, we have successfully got access to policymakers, for the first time in five years. This is a huge success for us. The Director General of Nursing and Midwifery made a number of commitments to BMS, which will help us develop further.
