“Midwife: A Calling” 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

“As a first time author, I had no idea what to expect during the publishing process. I heard many a story on how often the author lost part of their voice and much of the control went to the publishing company themselves. I never once felt that with Ant Press or Jacky Donovan. The personal touch was remarkable from beginning to end.

Jacky walked me through the process step by step and eased my mind with her speed at answering any inquiry I may have had. She cared about me personally and the message I was trying to convey making sure my voice was not lost in the editing process. I never once questioned choosing Ant Press and am very grateful for the experience.”
