Message from the editor.

This is my last issue of 'International Midwifery' as I am moving from my post at ICM to take a campaigning role in the UK's National Childbirth Trust, a woman's organisation that supports parents and lobbies government for improved maternity services.

I have greatly enjoyed my time in the editorial role, especially the contact with midwives from all over the world; it has been my pride and pleasure to help make their endeavours more widely known.

This particular issue highlights positive midwifery action in every ICM region: the rapid spread of the ICM/UNFPA 'Investing in Midwives' programme across Africa; a new midwives' association and better recognition for midwives in China; another new association in the smaller but equally dynamic country of Guyana; and a report from the Normal Birth Research conference in the UK, at which I was delighted to be present.

I leave with sincere best wishes to every ICM member and every reader for good fortune in these endeavours and all others to come.
