Global Message for International Midwives Day
Global Message for International
The world needs midwives now more than ever. That’s one of the messages being promoted during this years International Midwives Day, being celebrated around the world this Friday. CEO of the New Zealand College of Midwives, Karen Guilliand, says more midwives are needed as women in the 21st Century are exposed to a worldwide explosion of unfiltered information that can be confusing and make women and families anxious. While Internet and other digital communication growth can be a wonderful thing, it can also overload prospective parents with unnecessarily detailed information.
