Morning all, welcome back! Today I'm looking at "Hard Pushed: A Midwife's Story" by Leah Hazard.
Before you say anything, yes I did read this
book, that quickly. I just couldn't put it down. Whether you're male or female, parents or not you have to read this book!
It's heartwarming while surprising and even sometimes sad but the
messages that pour out of the pages of the courage of the women in what can be dificult times is outstanding.
Once upon a time I wanted to be a Midwife - what stopped me? My own fears I think.
That and personal issues with my family. I wouldn't have had the peace needed to do my studies. But I salute each and every Midwife - I hope one day it will be my turn to be cared for by these astounding (men and) women!
So, back to the book - I was engrossed from the off. I love that while the stories aren't of one particular woman giving birth to one particular baby, they're an amalgamation, the tales aren't any less true or honest and certainly nothing
is lost. The book is a great insight into the lives of the Midwives and the work they do.
I will happily be reading this one again, maybe when I'm expecting my own baby, if not before. I give "Hard
Pushed: A Midwife's Story" a 5 book score, it couldn't be anything less.
Enjoy! Stay safe, stay home x
