Baby Catcher - Brilliant book

Specialties Ob/Gyn


Hi, I am a student nurse who plans to go into midwifery. I have just started reading 'Baby catcher' by Penny Vincent and am finding it fascinating. I just thought some budding midwives-to-be may find it motivating.

I third this! I'm in the middle of reading it right now and I find it a very entertaining read. I love how it focuses on various issues of nursing/midwifery through the years. Specifically, I loved how she talked about her time in nursing school and how it was common for women to give birth in a drug addled haze and had very little to no control over their birth. This book is not only informative, but very humorous. I find myself laughing quite often at the stories Vincent tells. Highly recommended for anybody with a nursing inclination, but especially for those interested in OB/GYN, L&D, and/or Midwifery.

I loved this book. This diary was actually one of the things that spurred me to go to nursing school and now to grad school for midwifery. What is even cooler (for me!) is that I am relocating and just got a job at the hospital that Peggy Vincent wrote about... I am just so excited!
