Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
Psalm 127:3

Patti has captured the pageantry of this unique experience (midwifery & childbirth) and expressed it in readable form. I could not suppress a "Hallelujah" several times as I was reading it...If The Ministry of Midwifery had been available during my years of training lay midwives and delivering or supervising several hundred home births, I would have required the students to read it, and would have supplied it to our patients for the childbirth training classes. The Lord has blessed us with an excellent book, long overdue...
