International Day of the Midwife is a day to celebrate and thank midwives, a day to demonstrate the impact of midwifery in Canada and around the world, and to promote access to midwifery for all.
This year’s theme is Dance with and for Midwives. CAM is organizing a virtual dance for midwives to be held May 5. On this day, midwives, midwifery clients and families, partner organizations and associations from across Canada will unite to dance in solidarity to the same song… at the same time!
