Women and Birth
Content available at:
Formerly known as Australian Midwifery
Journal of the Australian College of Midwives (ACMI)
Women and Birth publishes on all matters that affect women and birth, from
pre-conceptual counselling, through pregnancy, birth, and early parenting.
We are interested in articles on issues relevant to the full scope of
midwifery practice as defined by the International Confederation of Midwives
(2005). We are also concerned with the longer term health effects of
childbearing for women and babies.
Our woman-centred focus is inclusive of the woman's baby, unborn , newborn
and infant, both well and ill, and covers both normal and complex
pregnancies. The Journal seeks papers from midwives, other health
professionals, consumers and scholars from other disciplines who have a
contribution to make to our understanding of matters affecting women and
birth. Sociologists, anthropologists, economists and historians are also
invited to submit papers.
The types of papers we will consider include research reports, both
qualitative and quantitative, methodology papers, theoretical and
philosophical papers, case studies and literature reviews. Clinical practice
updates, opinion pieces and book reviews may also be submitted for
