“A Midwife in Amish Country is a masterclass in respectful, woman-centred midwifery, written by a woman whose faith and humility are apparent on every page. Kim Osterholzer shows us the value and depth of women’s knowledge and peppers the pages with juicy tidbits of midwifery wisdom, but without being so unrealistically romantic that she fails to share the realities and some of the less evidence-based old wives’ tales that she encountered on her journey. I heartily recommend this book.”
—Dr Sara Wickham, author, midwifery lecturer, and consultant, www.sarawickham.com
Sara was one of the very first to write an endorsement of my book and, between her standing within the international midwifery community and my own tremendous respect for her, I was beside myself to receive it.
I first met Sara as I was still slogging through my seemingly endless apprenticeship when she came to our neck of the woods in Michigan to educate us, to challenge us to think, to remind us who what we do is all about. I loved Sara’s style from the first. She’s one of the brightest and deepest people I’ve ever met, even while managing to also be one of the sweetest and most down-to-earth souls I’m blessed to know as well.
And yet, for all her down-to-earth sweetness, I approached Sara with no small measure of trembling, and literally burst into tears when she sent her thoughts about it back to me!
Dear Sara, however can I thank you for ALL you’ve invested in my life? I’m so very grateful ♥
