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 has been a joy to work with Ant Press during the publication of my first book. Victoria has provided me with unlimited support through the whole process, always on hand to answer questions and guiding me through the more technical issues with admirable patience.
My book became a bestseller within two days of publishing. I consider myself to be extremely lucky to have discovered such a friendly and professional publisher. Quite simply I could not recommend Ant Press highly enough and sincerely hope that I will have the pleasure of working with them again in the future.
