About Us

The Idaho Midwifery Council (IMC) was formed in the summer of 1980 and continues to function as a voluntary professional organization, representing midwives across the State of Idaho.  The IMC supports and promotes the option of community birth for families in Idaho. It facilitates education and community amongst midwives through conferences and workshops. The IMC advocates for the midwifery profession, offering legislative support in maintaining and updating the rules and regulations of direct-entry midwifery in Idaho.  Our organization is open not only to midwives, but also to all who have any interest in midwifery, whether midwife, apprentice, student, consumer and/or supporter of midwifery.  As we network together, we endeavor to encourage each other to uphold the highest and safest standard of maternity care.  

Our Purpose

To promote communication and cooperation between midwives and other professional and nonprofessional groups concerned with improving perinatal outcomes
