A memoir of a young midwife practicing in the wilds of New Hampshire who trained with a wonderful old country doctor, fell in love with her obstetrician back-up, and ultimately became a national leader in the struggle to reclaim the profession of midwifery in the United States. A story of love, loss and deep dedication to birthing women.

"Inspiring, often hilarious, always touching and full of beans, Carol Leonard's memoir overflows with her gifts as a storyteller as well as intuitive midwife." ~ Ina May Gaskin, author of Spiritual Midwifery this book has really brought me something precious. If you are feeling down, or disappointed in the system, or even just need an over all shot in the arm, I recommend a good strong dose of Carol's book. She writes from the heart, and her personality comes through in a way that makes one feel the privilege of serving women, and the joy there is in really truly following your heart, your art, and your calling...I have not read a book like this ever, and anyone who knows me knows I have every book there is on childbirth and midwifery...I am a self admitting bookaholic...this is one I will reach for when my heart gets weary or numb from the intensity of what we as Midwives call our yourself a favor and get a copy of this book...and if you have a sister midwife you know could use a boost, get her a copy too. I also recommend that any and all student or apprentice midwives who are needing a clear picture of what it takes makes time to read this clearly shows what it takes...and what it means to be a midwife. A great read!
