Rest API - how to insert children display micro while creation of page


I am using confluence rest api and python module requests to create multiple pages in confluence. 

I will have parent and child hierarchy of pages. I want to insert children display macro at parent page using rest api call. 

code sample: 

invpagebodyhtml = "<p><b>This page is published by automation tool.</b></p>"
create_page = json.dumps(    {        "type""page",        "title""testing-notification",        "space": {"key""TEST"},        "ancestors": [{"id"1234567}],        "status""current",        "body": {"storage": {"value": invpagebodyhtml, "representation""storage",}},    })

response = requests.request(    "POST", URL, data=create_page, headers=headers,)

any help on how to include that macro here?
