May 5th is the International Midwives Day. Here is what theInternational Confederation of Midwives say about this day:
“The International Day of the Midwife is an occasion for every midwife to think about the many others in the profession, to make new contacts within and outside midwifery, and to widen the knowledge of what midwives do for the world. In 2010 and in the years leading up to 2015, ICM will use the overarching theme The World Needs Midwives Now More Than Ever as part of an ongoing campaign to highlight the need for midwives. This reflects the WHO call for midwives and the need to accelerate progress towards the achievement of MDGs 4 & 5.”
