The Ministry of Health is thanking midwives for their commitment to providing New Zealanders with high-quality care ahead of International Day of the Midwife on Saturday.

This year’s theme is ‘Midwives leading the way with quality care’.

A recent study commissioned by the Ministry of Health found no difference in risk-adjusted mortality rates among New Zealand midwives, regardless of the number of years they have been practicing.
