This review is from: The Midwife's Here! (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really enjoyed this book and was sorry to finish it. The author mentions she is writing another book to continue telling tales about her midwifery career so I would definitely read that one too when it comes out.
The first half of this book is more about the nursing career than midwifery, as it explains how she ended up changing from nursing to midwifery but the whole thing is really interesting, especially to see how things have changed in the nhs over the years (the book tells of her early career during the 60s and 70s) I found it really fascinating. The stories of the various births told in the second half of the book vary from the really heartwarming and uplifting to the really heartbreaking. At some points it made me cry. this book really makes you feel the highs and lows of a midwife's role. I found this midwife quite inspirational and she has an amazing story to tell!
