I thought that I would enjoy this book since I am slightly into midwifery, but I found it more of a dramatic/sexual book. Instead of this book being a fictional book about the life of a midwife, I found it to be a cheap,gross book. Do not be fooled as I was and waste your credits.
Of course, if you like that kind of book than this is the book for you.
The Writing, I found, wasn't very good either.
