Midwives Associations

ICM has grown from a small group of Midwives Associations in Western Europe to a major Confederation with more than 116 autonomous associations from countries all over the world. By strengthening member associations, ICM advances the profession of midwifery globally promoting autonomous midwives as the most appropriate caregivers for childbearing women.

Danish Association of Midwives

The Danish Association of Midwives was founded at a meeting in Copenhagen in September 1902.

The Association organises midwives and student midwives, jointly taking care of professional as well as job or work related interests in the broadest sense. The Danish Association of Midwives has approximately 2.500 members, of which 1700 are active licensed midwives, 500 are student members, and the rest retired midwives.

The Danish Association of Midwives is, apart from ICM, also member of European Midwives Association, EMA, of WHO-European National Nursing and Midwifery Associations and of The Nordic Midwives’ Federation, Nordisk Jordemoderforbund, NJF.
