Win A Signed Copy of Journal of A Student Midwife

Ends 26th August 2012.

More Than Mummies are delighted to giveaway a copy of ‘Journal of A Student Midwife’ signed by the Author Ellie Ryan, published by Book Guild Publishing.


Candid diary documenting the reality of being a student midwife

Ever since she had her own children in her early twenties, Ellie Ryan was determined to become a midwife – ‘the best job in the world’! After her children started school, Ellie began the demanding training she needed to achieve her ambition.

Ellie kept a blog-style journal throughout her training; the result combines laughter and friendship with poignant reminders that life is never as simple as we would like it to be. There are high points as Ellie takes steps towards reaching her goal; gaining confidence in her profession and helping women bring their babies into the world. On the other hand, Ellie worries that she will never have what it takes to become ‘a proper midwife’ and feels terrible guilt about the detrimental effect her pursuit of this career could be having on her family. This real-life story provides an intimate and candid account of the author’s journey towards becoming a midwife and the struggle to balance her professional and family life.

After being made redundant from her job in a call-centre, Ellie Ryan decided she would return to college to train as a nurse. After working as a nurse for a year she returned to university in order to achieve her dream of becoming a midwife. Ellie is now a practising midwife.
