Midwives Can Help Improve Maternal Health, Benefiting Whole Of Society

Huffington Post: Celebrating Midwives, Givers of Life
Isabella Lövin, minister of the Swedish International Development Cooperation

“…Our hope is that Midwives4all.org will take on a life of its own and engage, inspire, and stimulate debate about the central role that midwives play in strengthening the health and rights of women and girls. And that individuals, organizations, and decision-makers will come together to take on the challenge. Improved maternal health benefits the whole of society. The facts are on the table and the evidence is there. Midwives not only save lives. They are also actors of social change…” (5/5).
