Midwife: A Calling (Large Print)

“Midwife: A Calling (Large Print)” by Peggy Vincent

Who is Peggy Vincent?

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.

Testimonials

It was so exciting to see the finished version of our book up there for all to buy for the first time. From the very first discussion to the finished project, I felt in very safe and capable hands. Each step was explained in detail so I knew exactly where I was and what was next throughout.

Victoria and Joe’s attention to detail was amazing and their friendly, professional and personal approach made eveything go smoothly and stress free. I would recommend them without hesitation and will use Ant Press again for sure! Thank you so much.
