International Midwives Day

Every May 5th, we celebrate International Midwives Day, an annual occasion established by the International Confederation of Midwives in 1992 to bring attention to the midwifery profession and recognize the contributions of midwives.

This day emphasizes the crucial role midwives play in the health of mothers, children, and their families, particularly during pregnancy and labor. While midwives in ancient times leaned on experience and superstition, today's midwives are equally capable and proficient as OB/GYNs and obstetricians.
