It Shouldn't Happen to a Midwife! : More Nursing Tales from the Swinging Sixties Paperback / softback
by Jane Yeadon
Paperback / softback
Training to be a nurse in the Swinging Sixties was demanding but great fun.
In this sequel to "It Won't Hurt a Bit", it's time for Jane Yeadon to move on from her basic training to her exciting new life as a midwife.
It's a whole new challenge with a new set of intriguing colleagues far from home as she heads from Scotland to Belfast for a brand new adventure.
When she arrives at the Royal Maternity Hospital, Jane encounters the usual glacial matron overseeing the nurses and doing her best to keep them out of too much trouble, as well as fellow nurses English Cynthia, Timid Marie and Strongminded Margaret.
As they're thrown in at the deep end, Jane discovers that this is life in the medical fast lane where there are very few straightforward births and every day is a steep learning curve. And as well as their daily work, the nurses get caught up in the local issues and find out that there is also much to learn about this divided community which is rapidly being overshadowed by the gathering Troubles which will soon rip the city apart.
