The vision of the Midwifery Program, as part of the Office of the Chief of Nursing and Midwifery Office (OCNMO), is to ensure it leads and enables midwives to provide a high standard of care across the woman's continuum, empower professional capacity, enhance midwifery workforce sustainability and enable midwifery innovation.

Key principles:

  1. Enable midwives to be autonomous primary maternity carers by supporting and enabling them to work to their full scope of practice, thus attracting and sustaining a highly skilled midwifery workforce.
  2. Ensure that care is woman-centred, informed through evidence, provided with a known carer, is respectful of diversity and developed and maintained through collaborative partnerships with consumers and maternity stakeholders.
  3. Ensure Queensland women and their babies receive the highest standard of safe, quality midwifery care that meets the expectations and needs of women, their families and the community across Queensland.
