It's International Day of the Midwife

It's International Day of the Midwife

Did you know that today is International Day of the Midwife? That’s right, every year on May 5th, the world comes together to celebrate midwives and to honour their incredible contributions to medicine. Here at Access Courses Online, we recognise that midwives are the unsung heroes of healthcare, often working tirelessly to bring new life into the world and ensuring the well-being of both mother and child. I mean, think about it – their dedication, compassion, and knowledge make an immeasurable difference to countless lives daily! 

This year's theme is: "Midwives: a vital climate solution." It's all about how midwives are not just delivering babies, but they're also helping to create resilient health systems that can handle the challenges of climate change in the future. Plus, they're empowering women to make choices that benefit themselves, their families, and the planet 

Of course, when we talk about planning for the future, we can’t overlook the importance of access to education and training for aspiring midwives. That’s where we come in. At Access Courses Online, we offer flexible and accessible pathways for individuals passionate about pursuing a career in midwifery. Our comprehensive courses cover everything from anatomy and physiology to biology, ensuring that our students are well-equipped for success in their future careers.
