Happy International Day of the Midwife to the amazing midwives who work in our communities! The theme for this year is Midwives: Defenders of Women’s Rights. Celebrating this special day has become a sort of tradition for us, as we reach out to families and ask them for “Love Letters” written from the perspective of their Little Ones who were brought into the world under midwifery care.
Every year on May 5th we celebrate the International Day of the Midwife. This year’s theme is “Midwives leading the way with quality care”. Last year, we reached out to the families of Headwater Hills for Love Letters from their Little Ones to their midwives, and the response was overwhelming. We loved these letters so much that we reached out again this past week and have received the most beautiful stories and photos.
