Happy International Midwife Day - May 5th 2024

As we mark International Midwives Day, COINN (The Council of International Neonatal Nurses) proudly acknowledges the invaluable contributions of midwives globally. Their dedication, compassion, and expertise are essential in ensuring the well-being of both mothers and babies throughout the childbirth journey.

Midwives collaborate closely with neonatal nurses and other healthcare professionals, working in harmony to support families. Their advocacy and compassionate care make a significant difference in the lives of both infants and parents.

Beyond their clinical roles, midwives advocate for policies and practices that promote safe and respectful maternity care globally. Through education, research, and community outreach, they work to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality rates, striving to ensure every mother and baby receives the care they deserve.

On this International Midwives Day, let us reaffirm our support for midwives and their essential role in maternal and newborn healthcare. Their dedication and expertise make a profound impact on the lives of countless families worldwide. Let us celebrate midwives not just today, but every day, as we work together to improve outcomes for mothers and babies everywhere.

COINN extends heartfelt gratitude to midwives around the world for their unwavering commitment and compassionate care. Your tireless efforts are instrumental in shaping the future of maternal and neonatal health. Happy International Midwives Day!
