A Midwife's Story
  Zoom

A gripping first-hand account of midwife Penny Armstrong’s journey from student midwife in Glasgow to running her own practice among the Amish in rural Pennsylvania, A Midwife’s Story never fails to enlighten, inform and surprise.

Going far beyond mere biography, Armstrong’s journey of self-discovery is ultimately very moving, and it is the honesty with which she describes the world she discovers which makes this book a classic, and essential reading not just for aspiring midwives but to anyone interested in natural birth.

Reviews: 'A jewel of a book.' Sheila Kitzinger 'A remarkable book, as wonderful abut the Amish as it is about midwifery.' The New York Times 'Penny Armstrong is a symbol of the revival of midwifery on the American continent.' MICHEL ODENT - obstetrician and author 'A loving and generous book that speaks to many people on many issues: childbirth, families, the Amish, marriage, deformity, death, commitment, technology, and respect for the land.' ERICA BAUERMEISTER - 500 Great Books by Women 'Penny Armstrong is a flesh and blood heroine too remarkable for a novelist to have invented. . . . A book that is hard to put down.' GAY COURTER - Author of Midwife 'A charming, gracefully written book... a must for mothers-to-be and a delight for all.' The Kirkus Reviews
