Lovely book showing the Job of Midwife in a new light,
This review is from: The Midwife's Here! (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fantastic book showing how Midwifery has moved on and progressed over the last fifty years.
It is full of stories that will take you on an absolute roller coaster of emotions, stories of happiness as well as stories of utter grief, and shows how the job can be so very very raw as well as utterly awesome, bringing a new life into being with the barest of kit to full hospital support with doctors in attendance.
The advances that she saw during her career are fascinating, and really do show modern medicine in its best light.
Maybe not one to get though for new or expectant mothers as it is in places terribly sad, but certainly one for mothers with older children as well as Grannies and Aunties, I can see its fascination there as my mother loved it.
