Anne Lamott

author of "Operating Instructions"

"Baby Catcher" is a celebration of life, a book of beautiful and passionate stories of birth -- and the mothers, fathers, families, and friends who assisted -- told by a midwife devoted to more tender and natural childbirth. This is an inspiring, important book.



Anne Lamottauthor of "Operating Instructions""Baby Catcher" is a celebration of life, a book of beautiful and passionate stories of birth -- and the mothers, fathers, families, and friends who assisted -- told by a midwife devoted to more tender and natural childbirth. This is an inspiring, important book.

Adair Lara author of "Hold Me Close, Let Me Go" By turns hilarious, inspiring, celebratory, and frightening, "Baby Catcher" is a deeply human book -- warm, wise, and witty. I couldn't put this engaging page-turner down till I'd finished it.

Ina May Gaskin, C.P.M. author of "Spiritual Midwifery" Peggy Vincent's memoir of her career as a nurse-midwife during the last decades of the twentieth century covers everything from her days as an independent home birth practitioner to a shift worker in a high-volume "birth assembly line" of a huge HMO hospital. It's entertaining, funny, informative, and quite moving.

Chris Bohjalian author of "Midwives" and "The Buffalo Soldier" Peggy Vincent understands both the miracle and the mystery of birth, and she writes with an enthusiasm that is as inspirational as it is infectious.

Cathy Luchetti author of "Medicine Women" and "Children of the West""Baby Catcher" is a startling dive into virtual birth reality. When a "perineal cry" rings out, we nearly drop the book. When contractions knot up, we hold our breath. Page after page, we revel in astonishing new twists to an age-old plot, as Peggy Vincent delivers well-formed stories -- and children -- into the waiting world.

Marsden Wagner, M.D., M.S.P.H. former director of Women's and Children's Health, World Health Organization Author Peggy Vincent paints vivid pictures of what childbirth can be when allowed to be the way it was meant to be, rather than the way physicians say it should be. Scientific data shows that a midwife-attended low-risk birth is as safe -- or safer -- than a physician-attended low-risk birth. Every woman should grow up knowing that someday she can have her own midwife, and every family should prepare for birth by reading this inspirational book.

Reseña del editor:

An inspiring collection of birth stories by a charming midwife.
Each time she knelt to "catch" another wriggling baby--nearly three thousand times during her remarkable career--California midwife Peggy Vincent paid homage to the moment when pain bows to joy and the world makes way for one more. With every birth, she encounters another woman-turned-goddess: Catherine rides out her labor in a car careening down a mountain road. Sofia spends hers trying to keep her hyper doctor-father from burning down the house. Susannah gives birth so quietly that neither husband nor midwife notice until there's a baby in the room.
More than a collection of birth stories, however, Baby Catcher is a provocative account of the difficulties that midwives face in the United States. With vivid portraits of courage, perseverance, and love, this is an impassioned call to rethink technological hospital births in favor of more individualized and profound experiences in which mothers and fathers take center stage in the timeless drama of birth.
