about

Agnes Light trained as a nurse in the 1960s and went on to become a midwife - helping to bring new lives into the world for over thirty years.
After fainting from shock at the first birth she attended as a student, Agnes grew to adore her job and the lifelong friends that worked with her on the maternity ward. In her enchanting memoir, she recalls how she struggled at first with the strict rules of hospital etiquette, and the expectation that she would always know the right thing to do - from dealing with hysterical fathers to miracle multiple births - Agnes quickly learnt she had to keep a cool head whatever the circumstances.
This is a heartwarming portrait of a thoughtful and compassionate midwife. Funny, poignant and rich with period detail,Midwife on Calltraces Agnes's touching journey from squeamish pupil to assured professional.
Agnes Light has been a midwife for over 30 years. She lives in London and this is her first book.
