“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

I self-published my first book and was pleased with the results. But I still felt there were markets out there into which I could break but hadn’t yet done so. I’d met Victoria Twead on Facebook so approached her about putting my sequel with Ant Press.
I have been absolutely delighted with the arrangement, from the amount of time and effort which went into getting the manuscript just right, to the pleasure of seeing how well it is doing in those new markets.
Ant Press are totally professional but always very friendly and approachable. I could not recommend them highly enough.
