"10,000 Happy Birthdays"-walk


Yesterday, we celebrated the International Day of the Midwife and also the kick-off of the fund raising campaign “
10,000 Happy Birthdays” with a “10,000 Happy Birthdays”-walk around the lake Mosvannet in Stavanger.

During the walk around the lake, participants could get a refresher on CPR, learn basic obstetric skills, and take part in a number of other family-friendly activities. 

The walk was organized by the two local midwifery organizations and Laerdal. We also had strong support by the Stavanger University Hospital, University of Stavanger, 52 Rotary districts in the South-Western part of Norway, and SAFER simulation center.

As the pictures show, there was a lot of enthusiasm both among those who walked around the lake and took part in the activities, as well as amongst all of the volunteers amongst the midwives in Rogaland, Rotary, Laerdal Medical and Laerdal Global Health. Thank you for making this the most meaningful birthday celebration we ever have participated in!!
