“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

In the short time it has taken Victoria Twead, on behalf of Ant Press, to make my book available to the public, I have got to know her as a patient friend. She has dealt with every enquiry and problem with impressive efficiency and professionalism accompanied by a personal touch that made me feel valued as a writer. I have felt totally involved in the whole process, which has been very reassuring for this novice! I look forward to working with Victoria again soon, knowing that I will be in safe hands.

And I mean every word!
