Read full description of the books:



I purchased this book because it was required for a doula training that I completed. At first I was skeptical that a memoir/oral history would be helpful, but I was pleasantly surprised. In fact, I think I gained more from this book than I did from any of the (excellent) "how-to" type books about labor and delivery that were recommended.

The book tells the story of Onnie Lee Logan, one of the last African American "granny" midwives, in her own words. Often villified by the white medical establishment, the "granny" midwives played a vital role in the health of African Americans in the south up through the latter half of the 20th century. Ms. Logan's knowledge, skill and passion shine through on every page. Some of her stories had me on the edge of my seat. Her strong sense of midwifery as her spiritual vocation was inspiring. A must-read for anyone interested in the history of medicine, childbirth, women's studies and African-American history.
