I didn’t plan on spending my career looking between ladies legs. Becoming a midwife was one of those life decisions made out of necessity rather than dreams. Luckily I loved it, and 35 years on I’ve hatched over 3,000 babies – mostly in the hospitals, but some on the side of the road and in carparks. As I approach my diamond birthday, I care for 5 – 10 labouring women each week. Three and a half decades in this game has shown me that every woman has the same concerns, the same questions, and makes essentially the same noise when pushing a baby out.
I hope you enjoy the book, have a laugh, learn something, and relax about what lies ahead - even if only a little.
