Covid-19 has forced health care providers to change our work behaviour in a dramatic way. Lockdown is putting significant pressure on the way we provide healthcare. It is no longer ‘business as usual’.

    This crisis however provides us with an opportunity to review, rebuild and improve on how we deliver care.

    The IAANMP would like to provide a forum for the sharing of best practices. We are inviting all of our members to submit your innovative changes to practice, sharing your experiences and together providing a way forward.

    So drop us a few lines and let us know what you have been up to.

    Don’t forget to include a picture of you and your team.

    Stay Safe.



    The IAANMP committee  have decided to postpone our 2020 annual conference  originally scheduled for April 24 th  due to COVID – 19 concerns.

    We hope to have an alternative date in the near future and will post details as soon as available to us.

About the IAANMP

In 2004, a small group of visionaries convened in the pillar room of the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital to address the growing need for Advanced Nurse Midwife Practitioners  of all specialties to have a unified voice. The Irish Association of Advanced Nurse Midwife Practitioners [IAANMP]was consequently established to fill that need. Today we represent over 240 Advanced Nurse Midwife Practitioners from over 30 specialist areas.

The Association

Advanced Nurse Midwife Practitioners strengthen the health care workforce and maximize our health care potential.The IAANMP  is committed to working with leaders in the public and private sector to improve health care for all.


 The Committee

The IAANMP committee members are all volunteer members who  contribute their expertise in order to advance the mission and vision of the association.


 The Constitution

The IAANMP is concerned with the promotion and  the advancement of nursing  knowledge and the dissemination of information concerning Advanced Nurse Midwifery Practice.

We  aim to empower all our members to advance quality health care through practice, education, advocacy, research and leadership.


Position Statement

Today, there are more than 240 Registered Advanced Nurse Midwife  Practitioners practicing across the island of Ireland, strengthening health care access and delivery in nearly every county and every health care setting in the country.
