Have you had a look at the latest 'What would you do?' thread on SMNET Plus! yet? If not, why not?!

Each 'What would you do?' post includes an interesting scenario, often with no right or wrong answer, and it always sparks off an interesting debate. This week, the debate is centred around a woman who wants a homebirth, but her baby has a serious heart condition that will need significant medical input at birth.

Head over to SMNET Plus! now to join in!

SMNET is looking for an inspirational / motivational / educational quote to feature on it's new twitter profile, soon to be released.

Bear in mind we serve students, midwives, nurses and other health professions. Keep in mind what SMNET stands for. The quote does not need to be midwifery / nursing specific, but it must be relevant to all enough to go on our profile - Extra kudos if the quote is 140 characters or less but its not mandatory.

The quote can be well known already or one you've made up yourself so we don't mind if you decide to get creative yourself, or you could just tell us a quote from someone else / someone famous, its really up to you. If you submit a quote you did not write yourself, just let us know the author ;)

The person who submits the quote we decide to use will win a free year of SMNET Plus membership. :kicking:

Here are two examples to get you off on the right track:-
