International Midwives Day and the Nurse – ICM

International Midwives Day 2020:-  May 5th of each year is the International Day of the Midwives. You may think that it was an extremely long marked awareness day, but that day was officially formalized only in 1992 when it was officially launched by the International Association of Midwives.
