Australian College of Midwives

The Australian College of Midwives (ACM) is the peak professional organisation representing midwives and midwifery policy in Australia.

The Australian College of Midwives (ACM) was founded nationally in 1984, when midwifery associations in a number of states and territories came together to create a national peak body for Australian midwives.

The organisation provides a unified voice for the midwifery profession, supports midwives to reach their full potential and sets professional practice and education standards. Our Vision: Enabling strong and confident midwives

Mission: To position and profile midwifery as the primary profession for quality maternity care through advocacy, CPD and support

The Australian College of Midwives is committed to being the leading organisation shaping Australian maternity care, to ensure the best possible maternity outcomes for all Australian women. We are guided by research evidence that pregnant women and mothers benefit from having access to midwifery care throughout their childbearing experience.

The ACM is a federated body consisting of eight separate State and Territory Branches that make up the National College. The national office is based in Canberra, Australia.

The President of the College is Professor Terri-Lee Barrett and the Chief Executive Officer is Luke Williamson.
