This review is from: The Midwife's Here!: The Enchanting True Story of One of Britain's Longest Serving Midwives (Kindle Edition)
This is a super book, its makes you really laugh and at times cry, the story of this lovely lady's career from start to not quite finish is heart warming. We read of the fun the young trainee nurses have off duty, the strict training given in the 50's 60's and 70's,Matrons rounds when every thing had to be just so..or else (sadly no more), wards were to be impeccably clean as were the nurses, and the patents were nursed with love and care. Deciding at the end of her training to go to the grand new hospital that had just opened and train as a midwife, also for more training, going on the outside for home delivery's with a wonderful midwife, she gets to know just how people live some in abject poverty, and so her story goes on. I bought this book for my Kindle and was one of the first I read, it will stay in there, so that I can read it again and again it's that good.
