    • It can be funny, compelling, engaging, or unique. You can speak about your passion and creativity on why you raise public awareness about midwifery. Why is midwifery care the right choice for you? Which aspect of a midwife’s approach to health care would you like to share with others? How does the midwifery community impact your life on a daily basis? We encourage creative content as you reflect on how joining the industry has affected your life in a positive way.
