Celebrating International Midwives' Day 5 May 2010

These pictures are in memory of my mother Ella Davidson, who was a nurse and midwife in Brisbane during  the second world war.  After the war she went as a missionary nurse to China, where she met and married my father.  My sister Marion has written that story.
The second of these pictures is also my mother, holding our second daughter, Rebecca, in 1975.  We were living in Haslett Michigan at the time.

Please join with midwives around the world as we celebrate our day.

If you would like to join in with others in a 24-hour global techno-feast of live online celebration, click here.

There's a global photo gallery here.
