Today is International Midwives' Day. Call you midwife and thank her! Or you can send her an e-card here.
Links of interest:
MANA's IMD page.
New Zealand midwives want equal pay.
The website for the Australian College of Midwives says this year's theme is "The world needs midwives, now more than ever".
Nebraska's governor has made an official proclaimaion. Idaho too. Interesting, since direct-entry midwifery in both states is unregulated.
Will add more links later if I see some good articles.
