The impact of midwives —
4.3 million lives saved.
Every single year.
International Confederation of Midwives (ICM)
The evidence is in: investing in midwives saves lives, improves health and strengthens health systems! MEAC is thrilled to celebrate International Day of the Midwife throughout May by supporting our dedicated volunteers, reflecting on our past, and focusing on the data to demonstrate how midwives are fundamental to ending preventable maternal and newborn deaths and improving access to cultural competent healthcare for all birthing people and their families.
