A pick up/put down kinda book - only it NEVER gets put down!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Call the Midwife (Paperback)
This book has similarities to Baby Catcher, in that it is another biography, however it is set in London in the 1950's and highlights some of the realities of a darker side of midwifery. It brings the history and origins of British midwifery to life and describes conditions and early pionears of midwifery in some of the most poverty stricken areas of London. Ive not finished reading it yet but its one of those I just cant put down!! Id definately recommend it to anyone who has a vague interest in midwifery as its facinationg the think how far we have come in just 60 years (my mum was born in the 40's, which now Ive read this is a scarey thought!).
