Designed to transform practice
The Master of Primary Maternity Care is unique. It is the first and currently only postgraduate program in the world that implements the 'Framework for Quality Maternal and Newborn Care" from the Lancet series on midwifery.
Graduates of the program will be leaders in providing woman-centred care within maternity services where every prospective mother can access care from a known midwife.
This online program is ideal for all healthcare practitioners, including midwives, who are wanting to design, implement, and evaluate leading-edge primary maternity care models.

Be prepared to transform maternity care services
Students and graduates of the Master of Primary Maternity Care program describe it as “transformative”. Transformative because the program has enabled them to lead, with confidence, the reorientation of maternity care services in their area so that they are woman-centred. The program is designed around the key principles of the ‘Framework for Quality Maternal and Newborn Care’ from the Lancet series on midwifery. You not only learn these principles and how to apply them, but you can also tailor your studies to suit your professional background and future career plans.
Griffith Master of Primary Maternity Care graduate
On completion of this degree, I was given a leadership role as a practice development midwife, working with midwives within our hospital, students and graduates promoting continuity of care. Without this degree, I wouldn’t be in this position. I’d encourage anyone around the world in maternity services to do this degree, because it’s an amazing way to open up career opportunities for you, it’s linked with international maternity reform, and it will make you stand out from the crowd.
