International Day Of The Midwife

Every year on May 5th, the International Day of the Midwife takes place. While you’d think it was an incredibly long-marked awareness day, it wasn’t made official until 1992, when it was launched formally by the International Confederation of Midwives. Themes for the day have included healthy families, newborn babies, partnerships between midwives and mothers, and leading the way with quality care.

The IDM encourages midwives to make the day and raise money for good causes, whether that’s by organising a concert or march, setting up a stall to educate others on midwifery, holding a meeting, or even inviting a celebrity, government minister or expert to speak or open an event.
