Sometimes personal statements can be difficult to get started. I would be delighted to help you with this. Here is what I suggest you do. Write down a history of what you have done and relate to that the necessary qualities of a person who wants to go into midwifery.
For example -- here is the beginning and a sample of what I would imagine a midwifery personal statement might look like. A personal statement is just that - a personal history of how you came to be in a position where you are doing a job or asking to be hired for a job (in this case midwifery)..
Remember this is just a made up sample: If I can get you to write your history and interests, education, and experiences in a chronology - I can help you form a nicely written personal statement:
Example of the beginning of a fictitious personal statement:
When I was little and my mother was pregnant with my little brother, I remember looking at my mom's pregnant belly with amazement that this was the place my little brother would come from. After my mother came home from the hospital, there was more awe and wonder at the process of a growing baby inside my mother. I never forgot that family birth experience.
As a young adult, I went to school to become a nurse. During my studies I was required to complete a practicum in social care facility. I was assigned to work with elderly people. Although working with senior care is generations apart from midwifery and the babies, in many ways it was a similar situation. The skills needed to care for the aging are consistent with the same team building and functioning skills needed to prepare for a career as a midwife. I worked as a full health care professional team member to organize and provide the best possible care to my patients.
Let me know if I can help.
