it was amazing

This novel invites the reader into the world of midwifery as seen through a modern midwife's eyes. I read it as a registered midwife and can say that although there are differences in practice, the overall storyline of the novel takes the reader on a journey through the challenges and pressures we are experiencing as a profession today. This short novel moves at a fast pace and is threaded through with well written (fictionalised) anecdotes. There are laugh out loud moments amongst the all too familiar details of complex care and highly pressurised workplaces. I am not sure what the experience of reading this novel would be like for a reader who is not a qualified midwife but hopefully they will read it with an open mind and come to appreciate the person under the uniform.

I was given an advance reader copy by the publisher on Netgalley in exchange for a fair review.
