Born as the world plunged into war, Dee Roberts began her working life as a student nurse in sixties London and served as a midwife through three decades of massive social and medical change. In Passing on the Love she remembers the tears and the laughter, the hard work and the fun, along with all the incidents, accidents and absurdities of a career that has been anything but dull. How do you help a patient to navigate an imaginary car? Why are the more-senior midwives never free when the bonny baby contest needs judging? What is the tactful procedure when a home visit reveals an airing cupboard full of hospital linen? How do you keep a Christmas buffet tea fresh without a fridge? Dee learns how to cope with these and many other challenges, as well as the serious issues of life, death and faith, both on and off duty. Whether you are interested in recent history, or just interested in people, this is a fascinating, humorous and thought-provoking read.
