International Day of the Midwife 2017


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.

This IDM we are inviting and encouraging midwives to share your views, photos, stories using the phrase "I believe in partnership" on all ICM information platforms as a celebration of the wonderful work that midwives do around the globe. When you share your stories and photos, make sure you include #IDM2017. Click HERE to watch a video example of Nester T.
