Leah Hazard – Hard Pushed – A Midwife’s Story
WE ARE VERY SORRY BUT DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL THIS EVENT WILL NOT BE GOING AHEAD BUT WE DO STILL URGE YOU TO CHECK OUT LEAH’S BOOK IT IS A FASCINATING READ
No sleep for twenty hours. No food for ten. And a ward full of soon-to-be mothers… Welcome to the life of a midwife.
Life on the NHS front line, working within a system at breaking point, is more extreme than you could ever imagine. From the bloody to the beautiful, from moments of utter vulnerability to remarkable displays of strength, from camaraderie to raw desperation, from heart-wrenching grief to the pure, perfect joy of a new-born baby, midwife Leah Hazard has seen it all.
Leah is a professional midwife based in Scotland. Her book is a love letter to new mothers and to Leah’s fellow midwives with local midwife Mandy Robotham – there for us at some of the most challenging, empowering and defining moments of our lives.
The Big Book Weekend is brought to the Goods Shed by the Yellow Lighted Book Shop and runs from Friday 3rd May through to Monday 6th May. The full programme is available here: https://www.yellow-lightedbookshop.co.uk/index.html
