Nellie dreams about doing something special with her life. She becomes a midwife and travels abroad working with the Eskimos and Africans. After her great adventures she returns to Ireland, happy in the prospect of working with her own. But sometimes not everything goes according to plan…
If you think natural childbirth is the most horrific thing in the world come and see ‘Nellie!’ At the very least she will give you a laugh. She is old fashioned, liberal and outrageous. She loves women and they love her. At a time when rates of intervention are terrifyingly high maybe we should listen, see what she has to say.
