Congratulations from CAPWHN

May 5, 2018

To all our midwifery colleagues,

The Board of Directors and Members of the Canadian Association of Perinatal and Women’s Health Nurses (CAPWHN) would like to extend congratulations to our midwifery colleagues on May 5, 2018, International Day of the Midwife #IDM2018.

Midwives and Nurses have long been working together in collaborative care to support the best care for birthing parents. Your 2018 theme “Midwives leading the way with quality care” so accurately reflects this. This theme is timely as midwifery numbers in Canada grow, with efforts to reach more rural and northern communities. The clinical and research perspective you bring enhances best care for parents and newborns – we continue to learn from each other. Your nurse colleagues are proud to work alongside you as part of the team.

As you celebrate today with midwives around the world take special pride in exceptional growth made at home in Canada, and the enrichment your profession has provided to all of us.
