Bette L. Waters
Memoir of a Nurse Midwife ...Bette Waters writes of the struggles of pioneering midwifery in hospitals during her twenty-five years as a nurse midwife.
She tells us how writing her first book ever published, about pregnancy and massage, changed her life. She shares what led her to write My Mother Was A Spaceship, about overcoming the loss of her mother early in life, and about the never before heard voices of women relating how hospitals mistreated them while having their babies.
Waters' vignettes tell of moving from Southern poverty to practice as a nurse midwife, writer and publisher. Her writings about women are archived in the Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library, Radcliffe Library for Advanced Studies, Harvard.
