How are you celebrating #IDM2019? 

International Day of the Midwife 2018 was a great success which bought midwives, maternity support workers and student midwives together to celebrate a wonderful profession.

#IDM2019 sets out to encourage all Midwifery Societies and RCM Branches, their MSW advocates, workplace reps and our members to work together to host local IDM focused events during the Week 29th April 2019 leading up to International Day of the Midwife on Sunday 5th May.

Midwives: defenders of women's rights

This year, the International Day of the Midwife theme is Midwives: defenders of women's rights. Join us in celebrating midwives who have defended the rights of women, girls and midwives in their countries and communities.
