Leah Hazard’s life on the NHS frontline, working within a maternity system at breaking point, is more extreme than you could ever imagine. From the bloody to the beautiful, from moments of vulnerability to remarkable displays of human strength, from heart-wrenching grief to the pure, perfect joy of a new-born baby, Leah has seen it all.
Moving, compassionate and intensely candid, Leah’s novel Hard Pushed is a love letter to new mothers and to her fellow midwives – there for us at the most challenging, empowering and defining moments of our lives. Join her as she discusses her book with Cathy Rentzenbrink.
‘The stories in Hard Pushed highlight the bravery of our midwives, and the women they care for.’ CHRISTIE WATSON, author of The Language of Kindness.
