The exponential growth of mobile communications is connecting people in a way previously not imagined and creating opportunities to make unique health impacts. Integrating the strengths of midwifery care and mHealth technology into the strategy for achieving the critical Millennium Development Goals related to maternal and child health is a powerful way forward. Midwifery involvement in the mHealth revolution, particularly at this critical point in its development, could benefit midwifery education and access to midwifery care, creating the shift needed to make real strides in decreasing maternal mortality globally.
