Importance to celebrate International Day of the Midwife

Midwives perform a vital service in providing care and support to women and their families while pregnant, throughout labour and during the period after a babys birth.  

International Day of the Midwife, celebrated globally on May 5th, is an occasion to honor the essential role midwives play in ensuring safe childbirth and maternal health. In Bangladesh, where access to quality healthcare remains a challenge in some areas, midwives are vital in providing skilled assistance during pregnancy, childbirth, and postnatal care.

On this day, Bangladesh could organize various events to recognize and appreciate the contributions of midwives. This might include seminars or conferences discussing the importance of midwifery in reducing maternal and infant mortality rates, highlighting success stories of midwives in remote or underserved areas, and providing additional training opportunities for midwives to enhance their skills and knowledge.

Moreover, community outreach programs could be organized to raise awareness about the services midwives offer and the significance of seeking professional maternal healthcare. Collaborative efforts involving government agencies, healthcare organizations, and community leaders can further amplify the impact of celebrating the International Day of the Midwife in Bangladesh.
