This book is a thoroughly delightful little volume by an experienced and resourceful midwife. One of the things that make the book particularly distinctive is the impressive diversity of the author's work experience. This book includes stories from her work as a midwife in urban Chicago as well as in Africa and Mexico. As always, glimpsing the dire situations facing birthing women cross-culturally is a sobering reminder of the immense challenges international midwives face with few physical resources--they accomplish an amazing level of care with only their heads, hands, and hearts. Each story shared in the book is selected with care and has an important message to share. The stories are about unique women and their unique births and what the author (and the reader) can learn from them. From empowering and exhilarating, to difficult and heartbreaking, particularly notable are the stories that remind us all to treat every woman with dignity and respect, regardless of her life's circumstances or choices. She is clearly a midwife who loves women and birth and practices with sensitivity, respect, and positive regard. Get your copy today!
