Today, 5th May 2017, all mothers, midwives, partners, stakeholders and families around the world are celebrating the International Day of the Midwife. The theme for this year is “Midwives, Mothers and Families: Partners for Life!”
“Mothers believe in us. We are like their next of kin when they are going through the excruciating pains of labour. So we should try and give that love back; we should support mothers and help them have safe deliveries,” says Mary Ithungu.
