“The beauty of midwifery care is that it serves Motherbaby in all circumstances and belief systems. In A Midwife in Amish Country, Kim Osterholzer has written her story of becoming. May it inspire midwives of every persuasion to follow their calling as it comes from the core of who they are, because truly, this is the key to competent service.”
—Elizabeth Davis, CPM, Co-Director of National Midwifery Institute, Inc., elizabethdavis.com, author of Heart & Hands: A Midwife’s Guide to Pregnancy and Birth and the international bestseller, Orgasmic Birth: Your Guide to a Safe, Satisfying, and Pleasurable Birth Experience
Way back—WAY back, before I was even fully grown, I was handed a copy of Elizabeth Davis’ beautiful book, Heart & Hands: A Midwife’s Guide to Pregnancy and Birth, and I was captured. How many times I wound up reading it from then till now, I cannot say, but that it had a profound affect on my life, on the life of my family, and on the lives of the hundreds of families I’ve served, I can say with certainty.
Heart & Hands filled me, first, with the assurance I could GIVE BIRTH and give birth at home; second, with the desire to pursue the calling of midwifery.
I was surprised and unspeakably honored when, upon contacting Elizabeth about my book, not only did she invite me to send her a copy, she elected to write an endorsement for it, too.
Thank you, Elizabeth, for your years upon years of work that’s had a powerful affect upon innumerable lives, and thank you with all my heart for making the time to read and endorse A Midwife in Amish Country ♥
