Check a midwife's practising status

All midwives are issued with a practising certificate as an electronic document.

Your midwife should show you their electronic practising certificate; if she does not, ask to see it. Any conditions on their practice will be listed on the certificate. If a midwife cannot or will not show you their practising certificate, you can their check the status and any conditions applying by searching the register. This is the most up-to date way to check a midwife's current practising status.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the Council.
