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

Having had my first book published by a major NYC, I didn’t know what to expect when working with Victoria Twead and Ant Press, her small indie outfit.

What a revelation! She responds quickly, kindly, patiently, and accurately, and she’s a whiz at promotion and marketing. Six beta readers proofed my final manuscript. Within 24 hours of the eBook being available for pre-order, my memoir, Midwife: A Calling, was #1 in two of Amazon’s categories of similar content, and #5 in a third.

Best of all, from my perspective, was Victoria’s ability to calm my meltdown when facing computer and technology issues. She finally said, “I’ll do it for you. Just give me your password.” I did, and she did, and I slept soundly.

I’ll be writing at least two more books, and I’ll definitely use Ant Press again and again.
