What did you like best about The Baby's Coming? What did you like least?
I enjoyed the comparisons of midwifery over the years, and Virginia's journey was fascinating reading...
But I couldn't get past the egoism. "Every time *I* asked about the wisdom of this treatment, I kept being told no." "I do this because I was treated this way and I didn't like it." Perhaps it's the delivery, but it drives me crazy!
What about Julie Maisey’s performance did you like?
The narrator was beautiful! I will read more of her books as soon as I sarch for them.
Where does The Baby's Coming rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I have enjoyed Virginia Howel's book immensely. It took me right back to my own experience with childbirth in 1980. The way V.H tell's you about childbirth on the NHS during that period of time made me realize that we had the same kind of experience but then I was not aware that I actually had a say in the matter. I just went with the flow and things happened around me that I was not aware of. Virginia's views on home births and the way she helps women and ease their stress is just amazing. It makes so much sense and I hope that I can persuade my own daughter to a home birth with the aid of an amazing midwife when the time comes. The book captured my attention and my heart from start to finish.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Virginia is my favorite. My heroine :-)
What does Julie Maisey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The narration was fabulous and it gives the book so much character. JM managed to portray so many voices. The only glitch I can think of was the turkish accent. That sounded very eastern european to me!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes I would have love to listen in one sitting.. Even though the book is about births not two is ever the same. It never becomes boring.
Any additional comments?
I highly recommend The baby's coming :-)
