Birth is one of the most defining, ubiquitous moments of human existence and there, from the very start to the very end, are the midwives who help us navigate it safely.
The Secret Midwife (Author) The Secret Midwife started her training when she was just seventeen. For the last fifteen years, she has helped deliver thousands of babies safely in all number of strange positions. Working in a busy teaching hospital, she has seen just about all there is to see in the hectic world of the maternity unit. She is an ordinary working midwife, who, every single working day, commits to providing the absolute best care for those who need it. She bears no fancy title, sits on no high-up board and represents no corporate faction; rather, she is the voice for the countless women, men and children who benefit from the maternity care of the NHS, and for the midwives who proudly fight to preserve our most precious institution.
