Current Consultations

We undertake consultations with members and the wider community when developing position statements, policies and guidelines, submissions and other projects.

When consultations are open for input, information about how to take part can be found here. When consultations are closed, the resulting work will be published on this website along with submissions received.

The following draft positions statements have been developed by working groups made up of midwives and experts in the field related to the position statement.

To ensure the final endorsed Position Statement is informed by the latest evidence and expertise and reflect professional and regulatory codes, standards and frameworks, we now ask for feedback from members and any interested stakeholders.

Unless provided in-confidence, submissions will be published on the ACM website after the public consultation period, to encourage discussion and inform stakeholders and the broader community.

Once the consultation period ends, the feedback will be collated to inform a final draft. This will then be reviewed by the project working group and submitted for endorsement by the ACM Board. The final Position Statement will then be published on this website.
