really liked it

I really enjoyed this book. It had a lot of foul language because of the varied lifestyles of the midwife's patients, but none of the language bothered me.

I enjoyed the anecdotal form of the book, as well as all of the interesting birth stories. The book details the midwife career history of the author, Peggy Vincent, and gives an interesting picture of the situation for lay midwives v. certified nurse midwives. The book also shares a story and information on what happens in a lawsuit and the impact it can have on the industry as a whole.

I would have given this book five stars, but I only give five to books I would recommend that everyone I know read, and I know that this book would appeal almost exclusively to women, and mostly to mothers.
