    One thought on “Tales of a Midwife”

    1. A very readable account of work as a midwife in the NHS from 1989 to the present, with lots of little vignettes about the variety of experience faced. Anderson has worked around Britain in a variety of different environments, from inner city North London to Inverness, serving a more rural area as the nearest hospital for much of the Highlands. I particularly liked the fact that one of her jobs was at the hospital where my sons were born, and the author's interest in developing midwifery practice [...]

    2. Beautifully written memoir telling a story about magic of birth, as well as playing very important role in that birth as a midwife. Book was very easy to read as it is written smoothly and with warm personal touch. I found myself giggling at some moments while reading and sometimes even rereading the same sentence twice as some experiences of the author was quite shocking and I was doubting that I red it correctly. I would really recommend to read this book to people who are interested in birth [...]

    3. Fantastic. Enjoyable. A great insight for aspiring midwives like myself, highlighting the good, bad and bizarre day's of a midwife! It covers so many type's of birth and experience's which made it quite a page turner.There are a few mistakes which the editor failed to pick up on, in the book, but easily forgiven.Quite a quick read as the reading voice is very much like listening to your friend telling you about their day or reading a blog post. It's just that I didn't want to read it as quick so [...]

    4. I enjoyed this book, bits of it were slightly hard going but luckily they were interspersed with wonderful tales of magical births throughout Maria's career. I guess it would always be the same with this type of book, you have numerous tales to tell from your career but at some stage they have to be linked together and padded out in order to make a marketable book. Definitely worth reading, bits of it brought a tear to my eye. Lovely read.

    5. I really enjoy reading stories about midwifes and their journeys to midwifery or being a midwife, whether it be in a hospital or in the community or like this one a mix of all settings. I had a lump in my throat at times but found it to be a lovely book so much so that I couldn't sleep and finished during the night! Highly recommended.

    6. It took me a couple of chapters to really get into this book. I'm not sure if that is because it isn't really fiction and it isn't really nonfiction and I've not read many memoir-type books. Still, once I got past those first two chapters, the book really drew me in. I enjoyed reading about the struggles and triumphs of a midwife in England and then Scotland. Good book.

    7. Really great book. We'll written. Really brings to life the work of a midwife and the day to day things that happen, things that are wonderful and the bad things. Reading this book reaffirmed my decision to study midwifery.

    8. This book has a really heart warming tone to it. I simply loved it and wanted to hear more stories about her career as a midwife

    9. Funny and informative. Lovely to read a book about a midwife from the north east. So many places I know and have been to!

    10. I loved this book. It was a really nice account of the high and low roles of a midwife. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down.

    11. It is evident that this is ghostwritten because the style is quite abrupt, lacking warmth and cohesion even though the content is quite interesting. It is not a patch on Jennifer Worth.

    12. I enjoyed this book very much. It wasnt really a story just lots of snippets making it an easy book just to pick up and put down when you have the time

    13. Really enjoyed the real life aspect of Maria's training to her job. Not a chronical order type book but more like the Jennifer Worth books.

    14. Memoirs that deal with a whole career are hard to write well. Even when the subject matter is fascinating.
