THE SUNDAY TIMESBESTSELLER ________________ You haven't slept for twenty hours, haven't eaten for ten, and you're in charge of twenty heavily pregnant women at midnight. Welcome to the life of a midwife. Life on the NHS front line is tougher than you could imagine. Marathon shifts, endless birth complications, staffing shortages, pushy families, panicking mothers - and that's a quiet Thursday afternoon. But the strength and camaraderie of the women working under such intense pressure is a beautiful thing. Together, they must withstand one of the world's most difficult job, one that produces moments of pure, absolute joy and - terrible, heart-wrenching grief. Through the experienced eyes of Leah Hazard, we meet women from all walks of life- the scared fifteen-year-old whose baby could be months premature, the same-sex couple whose child will be a miracle of modern medicine, the woman giving birth in a room drenched in essential oils and love, and the mother-to-be whose tale of exploitation and endurance has carried her thousands of miles to Leah's ward. Moving, compassionate and intensely candid, Hard Pushed is a love letter to new mothers and to Leah's fellow midwives - there for us at some of the most challenging, empowering and defining moments of our lives. _____________________ 'The stories in Hard Pushedhighlight the bravery of our midwives, and the women they care for.' CHRISTIE WATSON, author of The Language of Kindness 'Heart-rending, inspiring and funny, Hard Pushed brings alive the world of midwifery in all its complexity and radiates love and respect for women.' PROFESSOR LESLEY PAGE CBE, former president of the Royal College of Midwives 'It is Leah Hazard's capacity to love and give so personally to the many thousands of women she has worked with which imbues this book with its power.'JULIA SAMUEL, author ofGrief Works 'Not only powerful but well written too . . . a worthwhile addition to a genre fast becoming as crowded as a busy maternity unit.' DAILY EXPRESS 'A riveting read- heartwarming and heartbreaking' SHEENA BYROM OBE, midwifery consultant and author ofCatching Babies 'A beautifully written, intimate portrait of the extraordinary work that midwives carry out each and every day.'CAROLINE ELTON, author of Also Human- The Inner Lives of Doctors… (lisätietoja)

When I read the description of this book, I knew that I needed to read it. I was curious to see whether it was packed full of lovely birth stories or just featured characters 'playing up' like you see on the television. What I read appeared to be a balanced account of what it is like to be a midwife these days. There is a bit about being a student midwife, a bit about working on labour ward, some antenatal care is covered and quite alot about working in a busy triage unit.

Several personal stories are told in detail. I am sure identities have been protected but they give the reader a sense of the variety of work the midwife faces and challenges such as mental health difficulties and lack of english which may not be considered by the general public.

The part of the book which resonated most with me was the description of the person in tears in the changing room, overly anxious about what she was about to face in her next shift and feeling overwhelmed by this. I was that person once and I can relate absolutely to the way this has been described. Leah goes on to describe that many of her colleagues are medicated for anxiety or depression and that this is considered normal in the service. Some colleagues walk away and never return (that was me) and others bravely battle on. At the end, Leah describes her book as a battle cry - it is in part a plea for the authorities to recognise the ways in which modern maternity care is broken.

This book should be read and carefully considered by anyone who is interested but especially by anyone who is considering working for the NHS in maternity services. Thank you to Netgalley for an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ( )
