Australian Midwives is a moving collection of real-life stories from Australian midwives working in remote areas of Australia. They share with author Paula Heenan their experiences of that most commonplace but miraculous event, the birth of a child.
These stories are touching, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking. They’re stories that show us from those on the ground what it’s really like to be an an Australian midwife in some of most isolated places on earth. They’re compelling and celebratory stories that bring us close to the drama and wonder of birth.
