International Day of the Midwife was first celebrated May 7th 1991, and has since been observed in over 50 nations around the world.[1]

The idea of having a day to recognize and honor midwives came out of the 1987 International Confederation of Midwives conference in the Netherlands. In 2014 it was celebrated in Iran[2] and New Zealand[3] among other places.
