The Australian College of Midwives are currently undertaking a comprehensive review of Edition 3 Issue 2 of the National Midwifery Guidelines for Consultation and Referral.
We are excited to announce that Edition 4 will be available in late 2020! Version 3 Issue 2 will remain current and available for purchase until the formal announcement of the new edition. More updates to follow!
Need a copy now? The guidelines are still available in a hard-copy, spiral bound book. Just select the quantity you need and follow our easy checkout process!
Due to the imminent release of the refreshed guidelines, we are selling Edition 3 Issue 2 for $10.00 (including postage).
Alternatively, you can access the guidelines direct from your personal device by downloading the app FOR $4.99 (available on iOS and androids platforms).
This is the current issue of the National Midwifery Guidelines for Consultation and Referral.
Issue 2 contains some additional indicators, some have been moved and some have been modified, and we believe it provides a very clear and extensive framework for health professionals working in the maternity sector. Included in the Guidelines is information about the three levels of consultation and referral, indications for consultation and referral, advice about working with women who choose care outside the guidelines, and supporting documentation to guide health professionals with the process of referral.
The Guidelines are available via:
- Smart phone App for iOS devices (i.e. by Apple): accessible from the App store at https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/acm-c-r-guidelines/id1294127591?ls=1&mt=8

These Guidelines have been endorsed by state and territory governments, are embedded in practice at every level, and are used extensively from private practicing midwives through to medical consultants at tertiary hospitals.
