There are many forums where a midwife may be called upon to account for her practice or business dealings. She may need specialist legal assistance and face exposure to legal costs and expenses or the payment of monetary compensation.
The College offers various insurance packages for its members. These are:
- Professional Indemnity Insurance
- General Liability insurance (for self-employed midwives)
- Statutory Liability insurance (for self-employed midwives)
Entitlement to these insurances is an automatic benefit of membership, providing the appropriate membership fee was paid at the time of the incident that gave rise to a claim and other policy conditions are met.
