A midwife's song : oh, freedom!

Image of item
"It's 1956, the beginning of the Civil Rights movement in the U.S. and the middle of the Cold War. Revolutions are happening all over the world. On the home front, midwives Patience and Bitsy face personal challenges. Their young adult children are changing. Bitsy's adopted son returns from Korea wounded in body and spirit. Patience's daughter is pregnant "out of wedlock," and Danny, her son, has a problem with booze. Childbirth in the U.S. is changing too. The midwives who were once called for home deliveries have been overshadowed by the new hospital with its "painless childbirth", until a few rebel nurses appear and Bitsy and Patience step forward to help them." --
