1) Midwifery Moment of Truth. Do you have a funny, compelling, engaging, or unique Moment of Truth about your decision to become a midwife? This category has traditionally been limited to student midwives and new grads; however, this year we'd like to invite midwives of all ages and backgrounds to submit a video based on why she/he decided to become a midwife. Video content should focus on how your desire and decision to become a midwife came to be – what was your midwifery moment of truth? Current enrollment in or recent graduation from an ACME-accredited midwifery education program is required for students who are submitting in this category.
2) Choose a Midwife. Use your passion and creativity to help ACNM raise public awareness about midwifery. When did you realize midwifery care was the right choice for you? Which aspect of a midwife's approach to health care would you like to share with others? This category is open to midwives, student midwives, and midwifery supporters. Video content must focus on why women should choose a midwife as a birth care provider and/or a primary health care provider.
3) Why I'm an ACNM Member. What does your membership mean to you? How does the ACNM community impact your life on a daily basis? What do you value most about being a member? This category is open to all ACNM members. We encourage creative content as you reflect on how joining ACNM has affected your life in a positive way.
