Midwifery Services Framework (MSF)

The Midwifery Services Framework (MSF) for Developing Sexual, Reproductive, Maternal and Newborn Health (SRMNH) Services by Midwives is a tool developed by International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) and partners to support the development and strengthening of midwifery services across all countries focusing on a quality midwifery workforce.

The ICM supports a midwifery strengthening approach using the MSF: The framework provides health system developers and planners, maternal and newborn health experts, policy makers and other stakeholders such as midwives, educators, regulators and professional associations with an evidence-based tool from which to develop new or strengthen existing effective and efficient midwifery services. The MSF supports the implementation of the midwife-led model of care, which has proven to be an effective and desirable model of care provision for women and their families.
