My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this memoir of Patricia’s path to midwifery. It was fascinating reading about her life as a hippie completely living off the land. I loved seeing how she was guided into midwifery and the path that led her there.
I also appreciated that it followed to her today “after” catching babies. The reflections of her life were a joy to read.
I definitely want to read her other memoir The Blue Cotton Gown. I really enjoyed her writing style and stories. I think any birth worker or birth lover would enjoy reading Arms Wide Open!
