Description

'The heart-wrenching tale of one midwife’s quest to help others –and make peace with herself '
LEAH HAZARD, AUTHOR OF HARD PUSHED
This is a story of women in crisis, seen through the eyes of a remarkable midwife
‘My own suffering, my own loneliness, was a fair price to pay for the lives we’d saved. And now here I am, training to be a midwife, so that next time I can make it better.’
Anna Kent has delivered babies in war zones, caring for the most vulnerable women in the most vulnerable places in the world. At twenty-six years old, not yet a fully-trained midwife, she delivered a baby in a tropical storm by the light of a headtorch; the following year, she would be responsible for the female health of 30,000 Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. But returning to the UK to work for the NHS, she soon learned that even at home the right to a safe birth was impossible to take for granted.
In Frontline Midwife, Kent shares her extraordinary experiences as a nurse, midwife and mother, illuminating the lives of women that are irreparably affected by compromised access to healthcare. This is at once an astonishing story of the realities of frontline humanitarian work, and a powerful reminder of the critical, life-giving work of nurses and doctors at home and around the world.
