4.5 A life changing and emotional book. midwifekim | 03/11/2010 | See all midwifekim's reviews (1) I was bought this book at the age of 15 by my parents when I expressed to them my interest in becoming a midwife. I had never before found a book which brought about such a mix of emotions in me, from great sorrow one minute to relief and admiration for Worth and the life changing work she carried out. For me this book was truly life changing as due to Worth's detailed descriptions of midwifery and the astonishing work she carried out I decided I wanted to follow in her footsteps and see the difference in midwifery from Worth's description as a student midwife to present day. I am now in my first year studying midwifery at university and truly believe it is the career for me. Although times have changed rather a lot since Worth's insight, I have 'Call the midwife' to thank for steering me towards my midwifery journey. A must read for anyone interested in midwifery or the history of Britain.
