5th May International Day of the Midwife

International Day Of The Midwife - Awareness Days Events Calendar 2024

International Day of the Midwife

On Sunday 5 May midwives across the world will be celebrating International Day of the Midwife 2024. This year’s’ theme is at the core of COP28 and strategies to improve the health and status of women. Midwives, as care providers and defenders of women’s sexual and reproductive health are key players in designing resilient health systems capable of withstanding the worst impacts of climate change, delivering environmentally sustainable health services, and empowering women to make decisions that benefit themselves, their families and the planet. Midwives are climate activists. We hope that midwives, maternity support workers and student midwives across the globe celebrate in unison.

Join a Parkrun to celebrate midwives

This year we are encouraging midwives to take part in their local parkrun event on Saturday 4 May in celebration of International Day of the Midwife, and we’re encouraging nurses to do the same on Saturday 11 May in celebration of International Nurses Day.

We will both be running the 5km course, and we want to encourage as many nurses and midwives as possible to join us.
