In honor of International Day of the Midwife

In addition to being the day Mexico celebrates their independence, May 5 is also International Day of the Midwife. In honor of the day, I'd like to share the link to the story of Puah and Shiphrah (from the book of Exodus) on Heatherlady's Women in the Scriptures blog. I love how the midwives in the story couldn't go against their divine responsibility to protect mothers and babies, even if it meant going against Pharaoh's orders.

I credit the nurse-midwife I had for my daughter's birth with helping me avoid an unnecesarian.

Does anyone have any good midwife stories to share?
