Imagine a world where every mother, regardless of her location or resources, receives the high-quality care she deserves during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum.
At the International Registry of Midwives (IRM), we are on a mission to make this vision a reality.
IRM stands proud as a nonprofit organization, founded by skilled Licensed Midwives from around the world.
Our purpose? To respond to the pressing need for autonomous certification that truly reflects expertise in low resource and global Midwifery.
We firmly believe that every woman has the right to safe, respectful, and compassionate care during one of life's most sacred moments.
IRM has made remarkable strides in advancing autonomous Midwifery education and certification on a global scale with the Certified International Midwife (CIM) program.
With great pride, we have awarded credentials in 11 countries, helping highly skilled Midwives gain the recognition and practice autonomy they deserve. But we're not stopping there.
Currently, our global network includes over 300 ambitious and passionate students from 19 different countries. These individuals, driven by a shared commitment to improving maternal and neonatal health, are the future leaders of Midwifery.
By joining IRM, they gain access to advanced credentialing, equipping them with the tools and knowledge to make a lasting impact in their communities and low resource communities globally.
Why should you support IRM?
The answer lies in the undeniable importance of Midwives. These dedicated professionals are the backbone of maternal healthcare, providing essential services throughout pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period.
By empowering Midwives through rigorous certification and ongoing education, we not only enhance the quality of care they provide but also ensure the well-being and survival of mothers and infants worldwide.
Together, let's create a world where no mother is left behind, where Midwives are recognized as the true heroes they are. Join us at IRM, and let's make a difference in the lives of women and children everywhere.
Together, we can build a future where every birth is celebrated and cherished – because every life matters.
