International Day of the Midwife, May 5th

May 5 is the internationally recognised day for highlighting the work of midwives.

May 5 is the internationally recognised day for highlighting the work of midwives.

 ICM established the idea of the 'International Day of the Midwife' following suggestions and discussion among Midwives Associations in the late 1980s, then launched the initiative formally in 1992. 

The International Day of the Midwife is an occasion for every individual 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.

The theme for IDM 2017 is "Midwives, Mothers and Families: Partners for Life!"

Midwives everywhere understand that by working in partnership with women and their families they can support them to make better decisions about what they need to have a safe and fulfilling birth.

Happy International Day of the Midwife 2017
