    Paperbackæ Midwives ePUB â midwives kindle, Midwives eBookIt was very well written but I read it with mixed feelings When I was done I had to say that I didn't like it The author says many positive things about midwifery but in the final analysis it really is an indictment of lay midwifery and home birth I gave birth to 5 children at home 1 with an old time doctor and 4 with a lay midwife I had 3 at the hospital 1 without drugs 1 with an epidural and 1 with a CS So I feel ualified by experience to at least comment My home births were by far my better birthing experiences espec

    Paperbackæ Midwives ePUB â midwives kindle, Midwives eBookThe premise of the book is that a very experienced lay not certified midwife has a messy delivery in a patient's home in which the mother ends up dying In order to save the baby when her efforts at CPR fail she performs a cesarean on the mother The baby incidently does live because of her efforts However her inexperienced assistant and the father of the baby both have their doubts about whether or not the mother was actually dead at the time of the incision and the midwife goes to trial for manslaughterI liked the story and the relationships between the midwife's family and friends and lawyers as told by her teenaged daughter The author does a good job of creating suspense and I did find myself drawn into it I really wanted to find out whether or not the mother would be convicted or not and really whether or not she killed her patient I won't spoil the end for you but I will say I was surprised and s

    Paperbackæ Midwives ePUB â midwives kindle, Midwives eBookI’ve had Midwives Chris Bohjalian’s fifth novel on my to read list for uite a while but I resisted reading it until now because of some personal baggage my only son was born perfectly healthy in a hospital; but the labour was prolonged resulting in life threatening complications that brought me back to the hospital in isolation for almost three weeks during which I was not even allowed to hold my own newborn child Midwives is a story about a pregnancy t

    Paperbackæ Midwives ePUB â midwives kindle, Midwives eBookI LOVED this book which was totally unexpected It was absolutely riveting for me There wasn't a slow part in it I really enjoyed the organization with the journal entries and the tone associated with the author's reflections kind of if only It made the whole book feel like you were hearing an exciting story first hand where the story teller felt compelled to add little bits of insight or extra information along the way to help enhance your experience I really enjoyed how it begins and especially how it ends WHAT AN ENDING Makes me think of the relationship between justice and mercyI loved the setting and the pace of the criminal trial proceedings I had read Civil Action before and it was far too mundanelytediously detailed and slow

    Paperbackæ Midwives ePUB â midwives kindle, Midwives eBook Midwives reminded me of a Lifetime or Hallmark film I found it kind of sappy to be honest but it's an interesting concept with a good mystery

    Paperbackæ Midwives ePUB â midwives kindle, Midwives eBookSo the Washington Post Book World says that this will keep readers up late until the last page is turned I started the book this morning and only had hopes that it'd be as good as the last few books I've read Didn't think I'd do all 370 pages today LOLI guess depending on how you feel about midwives and home births you could view this book as an injustice upon Sibyl or an injustice against the woman who died Personally I feel that a woman has the choice as to whether she wants a home birth or a hospital birth It's her body and if she wants the baby at home fine But if there's a medical problem then the hospital is the place to go But I understand that things happen I'm getting worked up about this and I know it's

    Paperbackæ Midwives ePUB â midwives kindle, Midwives eBookI would like to preface my comments with a recommendation that if you are pregnant or are planning to have children sometime soon this would NOT be a good book choice Having said that I thought this book was exceptional I was definitely drawn to this book having delivered both of my children with a nurse midwife This story is told from the adult daughter's perspective regarding her mother's role a midwife during a home delivery gone bad As I noted in someone else's review I had to stop a few times and remind myself that this was not a true story The author very realistically portrays the struggle of the lay midwife vs the nurse midwifephysician I thought it was uite thought provoking and I could not put it down for the last 14 of the book It is not a light fun read but an incredible one nonetheless

    Paperbackæ Midwives ePUB â midwives kindle, Midwives eBookThis was a gripping read and I loved Connie the 14 year old narrator of this story A compelling story and great characters I'm glad I had the chance to read this novel which was written in 1997 If I hadn't have seen mention of it in a review of another Chris Bohjalian novel I would probably never have chosen to read it Highly recommended
