International Midwives' Day

Maprik celebrates International Midwives’ Day

This is a first of its kind for the people of Maprik to witness the commemoration of this internationally recognised day.

International Midwives' Day is celebrated every year to commemorate and increase awareness about the contribution of the midwives towards patients; it is celebrated to highlight the importance of their role played in contribution to the health of their nation.  

Although the event falls on the 5th of May, midwives in the district hospital were adamant to commemorate this day today due to crowd movement.
