Been reading around and researching help and guidance for my statement. I see so many that include volunteer work. I literally have no volunteer work at all! I don't know what other personal experiences I can use other than work ones...
I feel like this will make me application so weak

Volunteering isn't relevant for the vast majority of undergrad subjects. What are you applying for?

They will expect some form of work experience for Midwifery, so they know you have some sort of understanding of the course you are applying for/the skills needed etc.

Many things can be used as evidence though, so think about what else you have done. Do you have a job? Are you in any clubs? What experience do you have with people? Think about the skills midwives nees - how can you show you have them?

Midwifery is a very competitive course, with a lot of mature students who might have spent years working in healthcare, but they do take younger people. Voluntary work isn't essential, but some sort of relevant experience is.
