In this International Midwives Day, Jigawa Nurses Forum wishes to express our profound gratitude to every midwife out there who has dedicated their lives to the well-being of mothers, children, and families. Your contributions are invaluable and they play an essential role in healthcare delivery and the development of our country.

Midwives are not just healthcare providers, they are skilled professionals who are trained to provide emotional and practical care before, during and after childbirth. They provide essential services such as antenatal care, counseling and education, delivery, and postnatal care. Their roles go beyond just delivery of babies, as they also support the mental and emotional well-being of mothers and help families make informed decisions about their health.

Over the years, midwives have played a vital role in reducing maternal and infant mortality rates in our country. They have been at the forefront of advocating for safe motherhood, promotion of breastfeeding, and provision of family planning services. They are the backbone of our primary healthcare system, and their contributions have been significant in ensuring that healthcare is accessible to the most vulnerable.

Midwives are not just care providers, they are advocates for women’s health and rights. They have fought tirelessly to ensure that women have access to quality care, and have played a key role in reducing gender-based violence and discrimination. Their work is a clear testament that women’s health is critical to the development of our nation.

On this day, we commend every midwife out there who has committed to providing care to our mothers, children, and families. Your dedication and hard work have saved countless lives and have contributed to the growth and development of our country. Your contributions are indispensable, and we are proud to celebrate and recognize you on this International Midwives Day.
