From the author of BABY CATCHER.
When Peggy Vincent first found herself holding a naked baby in her bare hands as a student nurse in 1962, she never dreamed the path her life would take as a result of that accidental catch.
Countless births followed. Hippies, lawyers, teenagers, welfare moms, marijuana growers, smugglers, spiritualists, Orthodox Jews, neurologists, Christian Scientists, Muslims, the rich and the poor...this list scratches only the surface of her diverse clientele.
Told with warmth, humor, and sincerity, these tales will resonate with all those who remain as enchanted as Peggy by the unique art of giving birth.About the Author:
In 1980, after fifteen years as a delivery room nurse, ten years as a childbirth educator, and three years as the director of the first alternative birth center in Berkeley, CA, PEGGY VINCENT became a Certified Nurse Midwife. Initially attending only home births, three years later Peggy became the first independent nurse midwife in the area to be granted hospital privileges. Her memoir, Baby Catcher: Chronicles of a Modern Midwife, was published in 2002 by Scribner and has been optioned for a potential TV mini-series. Now retired and living in Oakland, CA, with Roger, her husband of more than fifty years, she still enjoys putting in a cameo appearance at special home births now and then.
