Strongest supporter, best friend, expert, cheerleader and chief photographer . . . Before, during and after labour the role of a midwife is second to none. The Secret Midwife reveals the highs and lows on the frontline of the maternity unit, from the mother who tries to give herself a DIY caesarean to the baby born into witness protection, and from surprise infants that arrive down toilets to ones that turn up in the lift.

But there is a problem; the system which is supposed to support the midwives and the women they care for is starting to crumble. Short-staffed, over worked and underappreciated - these crippling conditions are taking their toll on the dedicated staff doing their utmost to uphold our National Health Service, and the consequences are very serious indeed.

The Secret Midwife is a heart-breaking, engrossing and important read. At once joyful and profoundly shocking, this is the story of birth, straight from the delivery room.

The Secret Midwife (Author)
The Secret Midwife started her training when she was just seventeen. For the last fifteen years, she has helped deliver thousands of babies safely in all number of strange positions. Working in a busy teaching hospital, she has seen just about all there is to see in the hectic world of the maternity unit.

She is an ordinary working midwife, who, every single working day, commits to providing the absolute best care for those who need it. She bears no fancy title, sits on no high-up board and represents no corporate faction; rather, she is the voice for the countless women, men and children who benefit from the maternity care of the NHS, and for the midwives who proudly fight to preserve our most precious institution.
