This book was just horrendous to read. Its poorly written and the author interchanges the use of surname and first name to reference the charachters so its really hard to follow.

Disappointing, really disappointing. I would have liked more details of clients seen and what life was like on the wards, less of the tales about her social life and the characters of her fellow nurses.
I expected better from this book. Not sure if I want to bother reading the author's other works after plugging away through this book

Disappointing. Poorly written and very little detail relevant to the title. I think the title was possibly adopted in an attempt to imitate a similar book written by a vet! In my opinion it failed. Such a shame! I ploughed to it looking for the humour and the little cameos of a midwife's life but for me, they didn't materialise.

The story was OK. But I expected stories about midwifes, Rather was about midwifery school with out much about births.

Knew after a few pages it wasn't my kind of thing.

Couldn't get into it. I read about 50 pages n didn't quite understand what was going on half the time.
