World Midwife Day

On May 5th 2014, Wellness Center staff marked the World Midwife Day with an activity in Mother Teresa Boulevard – distributing flyers on the role and importance of midwifes, use of WHRC resources, and performed some basic checks to passing pregnant women together with Medical Students of UP and UCCK staff. The event was covered by local TVs stations.

The brochures explained the important role of a midwife when a woman undergoes a normal pregnancy. Women were advised on the importance of having good relationships with their midwives and using the Women ‘s Health Resource Center for counseling. Childbirth may be the most powerful life experience a woman undergoes and midwives can play an important role in this an experience.
