Midwives, mothers and families: partners for life

Thursday, 11 May 2017


The School of Nursing & Midwifery proudly celebrated the International Day of the Midwife on Friday 5 May with a morning tea in honour of all Midwifery staff and students.

“Midwifery care can make a huge difference to expectant and new parents and newborns, and I am very proud and privileged to be a member of the profession”, said Dr Sara Bayes, Associate Professor and Associate Dean of Midwifery.

The International Day of the Midwife is an occasion for every individual midwife to think about the many others in the profession, to make new contacts within and outside midwifery, and to widen the knowledge of what midwives do for the world.

The theme for IDM 2017 was “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.
