New Zealand’s MMPO Midwives: Care Activities and Outcomes Reports
Lead Maternity Carer (LMC) midwife members of the New Zealand College of Midwives can join the Midwifery and Maternity Provider Organisation (MMPO), which is a nationwide organisation offering a practice management service for community based LMC midwives.
Members of the MMPO contribute to a national midwifery activities and outcomes database, namely COMCORD (College of Midwives Clinical Outcomes and Research Database).
All midwifery data obtained through the MMPO practice management system is anonymised, aggregated and developed into a series of reports for benchmarking, research and service monitoring. This data is used to provide direction for midwifery practice and maternity service development, both nationally and internationally.

The College and the MMPO would like to take the opportunity to thank all the midwives and women who contribute to these annual reports.
