International Day of the Midwife (International Midwives Day)

International Day of the Midwife was first celebrated May 5, 1991, and has since been observed in over 50 nations around the world.
The idea of having a day to recognize and honor midwives came out of the 1987 International Confederation of Midwives conference in the Netherlands. In 2014 it was celebrated in Iran and New Zealand among other places.
Since 1991 the International Day of the Midwife (IDM) on 5 May has provided an annual focal point for midwives, midwifery associations and partners around the world to raise awareness of midwifery and extend the influence of midwives in order to lobby and advocate for policy changes relating to maternal, newborn and reproductive healthcare nationally and internationally.

Quotes & Wishes - A body of knowledge that is shared by women A body of knowledge that is shared by women

When you destroy midwives, you also destroy a body of knowledge that is shared by women, that can’t be put together by a bunch of surgeons or a bunch of male obstetricians, because physiologically, birth doesn’t happen the same way around surgeons, medically trained doctors, as it does around sympathetic women.
