Give a midwife a hug. She deserves it.
Midwives are healthcare professionals who get to follow families during an important transition in their lives. They work shift work in all kinds of locations; home, hospital and birth centre are where they provide care. Today is the day that we recognize their efforts.
I had a midwife - actually two - just recently in attendance at my baby's birth. They were wonderful, knowledgeable, comforting, and kind. Thanks Kim and Leah.
