Student midwives - Be heard!

The Future Midwives Coalition we heard about a few months ago has taken shape and also joined with MAMA's Student Section. They've created an anonymous and comprehensive survey for aspiring, student, new, seasoned and retired midwives of all ilks to share their experiences, opinions, and ideas. And on the whole gamut.. apprenticeships, education, inclusiveness, specific programs, etc.

"We specifically encourage people from marginalized communities to share their experiences so that we can create documents that serve all future midwives, in a truly inclusive way," they write.

The responses will be painstakingly used to draft a "Bill of Rights" which will hopefully help to shape a more sound, diverse, and feasible future for incoming midwives.

So go fill out the survey!
