Midwifery Education Mission
The mission of Midwife International is to improve women’s health and birth outcomes by providing excellence in midwifery education. Midwifery Education Mission
According to the UNFPA, “The evidence is clear: investing in midwifery saves lives. A return on investment calculation has shown that across 58 countries as many as 3.6 million maternal, fetal and newborn deaths per year could be averted if all women had access to the full package of reproductive, maternal and newborn care. Midwives and the midwifery workforce are important in the provision of all these services.” Midwifery Education Mission
Our solution is to utilize service learning to train midwives who will be equipped to provide high-quality maternity care in a variety of settings, especially in resource-constrained regions where birth outcomes can be improved, and the need for professional midwives is greatest. Our comprehensive academic and clinical programs encourage participants to develop themselves as leaders (not just practicing midwives) who understand world culture and women’s issues, embrace civic participation, and promote the development of midwifery as a whole.

Our service learning model is designed to influence the way student midwives see themselves and their role in the communities they serve, and to develop the skills necessary to become the future leaders of positive change in maternity care.
