Publisher Comments:

Jennifer Worth was just twenty-two when she volunteered to spend her early years of midwifery training in London's East End in the 1950s. Coming from a sheltered background there were tough lessons to be learned. The conditions in which many women gave birth just half a century ago were horrifying.

Loved this book. Learned so much about the joys and sorrows of 1950 East End London. The times were hard, but the birth of babies brought hope and strength.
