Student Midwives Competition

5 CommentsFriday, 27 February 2015  |  pinterandmartin

Our fabulous indexer Helen Bilton thinks that The Roar Behind the Silence is such a valuable resource for a new generation of midwives that she is donating her fee in order for Pinter & Martin to be able to give away 2 boxes of The Roar Behind the Silence.​ Each box contains 24 copies of the book and will be donated to 2 lucky cohort years at 2 universities/colleges in the UK. PLUS we are giving away a copy of the book to 10 midwifery education libraries outside the UK.
