Book reviews of New Walk: Midwife Diaries by Ellie Durant

Why do you want to be a midwife? You need to be able to picture yourself being an advocate for women, no matter what their background or personality. To be a midwife you need to be free from prejudice as well as being able to make decisions quickly and having determination. Imagine you are a woman in labour, what would you want? What would matter to you? As we all know, babies are born when they want to be born; they call the shots.

As good as new. One of the best motivational book I have read! In good condition.

Ordinarily, I avoid e-books. There are some meaty themes in this novel about women, their relationships, their autonomy, their rights, their caring responsibilities and the choices they make — in all areas of life, not just birth. Chloe, the main character, is an engaging narrator. I found the sections of the book about her progress through the first year of her midwifery degree particularly readable. I loved the astute, humorous observations about suddenly becoming immersed in such an intense, responsible role and I enjoyed seeing Chloe navigate all the complex joys and politics of placement. I tried to step outside myself and assess whether these sections would appeal to somebody without a connection to the world of midwifery and I think they would. Overall, this novel is a delight and I think most readers will find something within it to capture their attention and draw them into the plot.

As good as new. One of the best motivational book I have read! In good condition. Postage will be extra. Glenn Toole, Susan Toole Never used, v good condition. It is in very good condition, all pages are clear from any pen ink or writing. The edges around the book are damaged, in a condition what the average student would find his or her book in after a week of use.
