Midwifery Annual Recertification Hours

There is no longer a requirement for any elective education that a midwife undertakes towards fulfilling their Annual Recertification to be accredited by the Midwifery Council.

The process to attain accreditation was not particularly onerous and could be easily undertaken by those who provide evidence-based education already as a part of their business model.

There is still no requirement for midwives to complete any additional breastfeeding education the moment they become qualified, not even for their Annual Recertification Requirements.
