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

Working with Ant Press has been effortless. I contacted this publishing company with a book and no idea how to get it from A to B. Victoria Twead and Jacky Donovan talked me through every step of the journey, offering advice and guiding me.

I am thrilled with the finished product, with the service that this incredibly friendly company provided and I feel like I have gained some wonderful friends. Rather than taking over and running with it, we worked together and I learned so much. I cannot fault Ant Press in any way and would highly recommend them. Looking forward to presenting my next book to them in the future.
