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.
