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.

Studying the program is a rich experience for all. You’ll learn with students from all over the world as you study online with us. Your fellow students will have experience of different maternity services and a range of valued and diverse points of view to share with students and faculty.

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.
