Second Opinion: International Day of the Midwife

Wednesday, May 05, 2021

For International Day of the Midwife, two midwives with vastly different experiences, talk about both the changes, and lasting impacts of midwifery.


The theme for this year is “Follow the data, invest in midwives”. The evidence is really clear that investing in midwives saves lives. It’s an investment in families, in health services and in community.

We are incredibly proud of the work that our midwives do each and every day at Eastern Health. Thank you to our midwives for the work you do providing great care for our patients and their families.
