The Future of Midwifery Education

To have a meaningful discussion about the future of midwifery education, we must consider the question: what is a midwife?

And finally, the most important question of all: exactly who “owns” human reproduction? Only after we answer these important questions can we start to analyze and develop a plan to educate the midwives of the future and begin to truly address the huge crisis we have in maternal and child health care today.
