Not only does this book give so many wonderful homebirth experiences to read about, but it is also a subtle piece of propoganda for the value of midwives and drug-free homebirth. A touching, at times heart rending book, I would recommend this to anyone ever interested in pregnancy or childbirth.

Read this book on a whim, normally I am not interested in the subject of midwifery. Peggy Vincent really did an exceptional job to speak in Everyman terms so we can understand what is going on. The chapters are normally different experiences she has had with her clients. Some are amusing, some are sad, and there are a lot of tearfully joyous moments.
She was pretty much there at the onset of bringing home births and unmedicated births out of. He closet in the Bay Area.
Great story.

I thought this was cute and it brought tears to my eyes more than once. Stories from a midwife, this book also talks about the history of midwifery and the struggles to be recognized as a viable option by medical professionals. Poignant.

Highly readable, entertaining read. Never had a child, never wanted one, but I am fascinated by midwives and this is the best of all the midwife books I've read. Engaging and well written.

One of the best books I've ever read. As a female, it changed my perspectives on many aspects of birthing babies. Peggy Vincent is a hero. Touching.
