Baby Catcher: Chronicles of a Modern Midwife
Language: English | EPUB / MOBI | ISBN-10: 0743219341 | 2003 | 336 pages | 0.7 MB / 0.7 MB
Each time she knelt to "catch" another wriggling baby – nearly three thousand times during her remarkable career – California midwife Peggy Vincent paid homage to the moment when pain bows to joy and the world makes way for one more. With every birth, she encounters another woman-turned-goddess: Catherine rides out her labor in a car careening down a mountain road. Sofia spends hers trying to keep her hyper doctor-father from burning down the house. Susannah gives birth so quietly that neither husband nor midwife notice until there's a baby in the room.
