An Everyday Miracle
In An Everyday Miracle, eminent obstetrician and gynaecologist Jim Dornan gives a unique insight into the world of pregnancy, birth and women's health.
Drawing on his 40-year career, he talks openly and at times controversially about working in a busy maternity unit, and about the immense joy, and sometimes heartbreak and loss, that women experience during pregnancy and childbirth.
Taking up where Call the Midwife left off, An Everyday Miracle tells the extraordinary stories of mothers, babies and their care over the last half-century.
