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.

IDM 2017 Activity: I believe in partnership

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.
