Tales of a Midwife is Brilliant!!, 31 Mar 2012
I actually came across this book when I was googling homebirths for my a facebook page, an article in the news about the book came up in the search, I shared it, then a couple days later I decided I was going to give it a go despite never before deviating from fantasy novels, I'm really glad I did! I loved every bit of the book though I was in tears at bits, I really admire the work Maria has done! And all midwifes! I love Maria's fight for natural birth & breastfeeding its great that there are midwifes like her pushing for that, birth has definately become unnessacarily medicalized! feel sorry that she never got the births she wanted but I'm guessing she wouldn't change it for the world :)
I honestly couldn't put this book down, which surprised me as I've never ventured outside the fantasy realm LOL
I would recommend this to every one, it doesn't matter if your not interested in midwifery as a career, if you love babies and love watching birth programs then you'll absolutely love this book, you will cry with Maria and Laugh with her all the way through the book!
