MIDIRS (Midwives Information and Resource Service)

MIDIRS is a not-for-profit educational charity, providing essential information resources to assist maternity health care professionals with their career development from the very beginning. Since 1985, our MIDIRS Midwifery Digest journal and MIDIRS Reference Database have helped midwives and students keep up to date with the latest developments in midwifery.

MIDIRS offers affordable subscriptions to anyone looking to keep up with developments in maternity care in the UK or overseas, with reduced subscription rates for UK students. By subscribing to MIDIRS, you will receive their 136-page quarterly academic journal, MIDIRS Midwifery Digest, which contains articles and study reviews ranging from the antenatal to postpartum period, organised into the following easy-to-use sections:

• Research/Education
• Midwifery
• Pregnancy
• Labour and Birth
• Postnatal
• Infant Nutrition
• Neonatal and Infancy

Subscribers also benefit from access to the online MIDIRS Reference Database, which contains over 230,000 bibliographic information and abstracts from across the field.
