Independent Midwives UK exists for the dissemination of information about, and support for, independent midwives, and to lobby for the traditional role of the midwife.

Independent midwives are fully qualified, self-employed, professional midwives who provide a personalised service to women and families. They work closely with women, offering them continuity of midwifery carer through pregnancy, during birth and afterwards. The trusting relationship that develops throughout their care enables women to make the informed choices and decisions that are right for them.
