May 5th is International Day of the Midwife

It's not just Cinco de Mayo today! More importantly (I think), today is International Day of the Midwife. In case you don't know, a midwife is a specialist of well woman care, prenantal care, labor and delivery of babies in a less clinical (and intervention-laden, usually) way than obstetricians. Obstetricians are medical doctors that are trained as surgeons first, so midwives are a great choice for women that are having healthy pregnancies and have no risk factors that require a surgical birth.
