International Day of the Midwife

 A message from RANZCOG President Dr Benjamin Bopp to all who work in the midwifery profession on International Day of the Midwife.


The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

14 June 2022

It is fitting that, on International Day of the Midwife, we acknowledge the role midwives have played in the astounding response to the global pandemic.

Maternity care, like emergency care, knows no regular hours and cannot be “switched off” when other priorities arise.

To the midwives that continued on at the coalface tirelessly working and reassuring, going above and beyond as we all forged into an unknown tomorrow, the maternity teams and families of the world remain eternally grateful.

Happy International Day of the Midwife.
