A must read for ALL student midwives,
This review is from: The Baby's Coming: A Story of Dedication by an Independent Midwife (Paperback)
This book looks at all the different aspects of midwifery which are familiar to experienced midwives. It tells of the journey as a student and newly qualified midwife (we all recognise the 'Bisons'!!!) and then goes on to talk about Virginia's career as an Independent Midwife, weaving it around it the personal story of Virginia and her family. The stories of the births she attends made me reminisce about my career. It is well thought out and sweeps you along - warning - don't expect to get any studying or housework done whilst it's in your hands!!! All in all, a good all round book about modern day midwifery. It will be a real shame if it becomes historical if Independent Midwifery ceases to exist.
