Midwives save lives – but they need support too

On the International Day of the Midwife 2021, amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, an important reminder that while midwives save lives in Asia-Pacific and globally, they are vulnerable too – and need support, including psychosocial health services and other essentials.

Let’s celebrate and honour midwifery by ensuring governments and other key partners invest in and support this crucial profession – especially as we seek to build back better in the wake of the pandemic. The lives of millions of pregnant women, new mothers and newborns depend on this.
