“One ought never to turn one’s back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!”

― Winston Churchill

FREE Nook Book Friday

the midwifes here

Get them Nooks ready to download this week’s selection. The Midwife’s Here seems like an interesting read, especially since I used midwives for both my pregnancies.

Today’s Free Fridays book selection, Linda Fairley’s The Midwife’s Here!:The Enchanting True Story of One of Britain’s Longest Serving Midwives, is a touching memoir from a veteran midwife across the pond.

 Manchester, England’s Linda Fairley spent forty years delivering babies and saving women dealing with complicated pregnancies.”Delivering my first baby is a memory that will stay with me forever. Just feeling the warmth of a newborn head in your hands, that new life, there’s honestly nothing like it… I’ve since brought more than 2,200 babies into the world, and I still tingle with excitement every time.”
From Fairley’s beginnings as a trainee nurse at the Manchester Royal Infirmary at just 18 years old, to her present-day position working two days a week as a community midwife for Tameside Hospital, The Midwife’s Here! recounts the fascinating life story of a woman performing one of the most essential medical occupations of our time.
If you don’t have a Nook, you can get this book from Amazon for as low as $0.10.
