“Midwife: A Journey (Memoirs of an Urban Midwife, Book II” 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

Ant Press provides all the benefits of a small publishing company – they know their authors, care about each project, and pay close attention to every detail – and they’ve got the know-how and professionalism of a much bigger firm. I knew I was in good hands from the first moment. My previous book was handled by a large American company, and they did a very good job. But Ant Press is better. They go the extra mile to make sure each book is well-produced and properly launched. And they’re great to work with, making it fun to be a part of Ant Press.
