Singing vicars, baby whisperers, divas, deviants and more. Find out what really happens behind the closed doors of labour rooms, on inpatient wards, during outpatients clinics and inside homes. Special Deliveries is filled with stories about home births, outdoor births, water births, hospital births and other life changing moments that will appeal to anyone with an interest in pregnancy and childbirth.
Identifying factors and events have been altered so that all the stories within this book, although based on elements of factual midwifery practice, have been fictionalised in order to maintain the anonymity and / or confidentiality of those the author cared for and worked with throughout the years.
"Special Deliveries is a wonderful collection of stories that pull the reader through a gamut of emotions from start to finish, given all the more impact by the fact the stories are about what really happens behind the closed doors of delivery rooms. From the sadness of the butterfly baby to the joy of a healthy newborn, each one is indeed a very special delivery." Clare Christian, The Book Guru
“D.J. Kirkby writes with compassion and energy, creating characters you really care about.” Sarah Salway, Canterbury Poet Laureate
