"Midwife on Call"




I have just read (in one sitting) the lovely "Midwife on call" by Agnes Light, a memoir of a life in midwifery. Highly recommended, it's a chatty novel telling stories of hospital life in the 1970s, homebirths and the changes in policy. It's the human stories that are most compelling here, and having just had a homebirth myself, very heart warming to read case studies with the author's experiences of hysterical parents, multiple births and sad stories of babies who didn't make it.
