Hard Pushed by Leah Hazard
A slightly gentler, more compassionate look at life within a maternity ward than Adam Kay’s This is Going to Hurt. However Leah Hazard, who still works as a mid-wife within the NHS, does not pull her punches. Her book is a paean of tribute to the mothers and midwives who strive so hard to deliver healthy babies in an environment which suffers from being undervalued and underfunded, which makes it essential reading.
