Motion text

That this House notes that the best outcomes for mothers and babies, including low mortality statistics and high levels of maternal satisfaction, occur when there is separate and distinct midwifery legislation resulting in high quality midwifery care which contributes significantly to the improvement of public health and results in the best physical and pscho-social wellbeing for the mother, new baby and family, and that any future regulation of midwifery must recognise the uniqueness of the profession by the provision of a midwifery board within the statutory framework.
