Leah Hazard: Hard Pushed
Approx 1 hour
Leah Hazard is a serving NHS midwife. In Hard Pushed she writes of life at the front line of the maternity ward. No sleep for twenty hours. No food for ten. And a ward full of soon-to-be mothers...Welcome to the life of a midwife. Leah’s experience on the NHS front line, 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 camaraderie to raw desperation, from heart-wrenching grief to the pure, perfect joy of a newborn baby, Leah has seen it all. This is an utterly engrossing, inspiring, funny, passionate and candid piece of writing - a love letter to new mothers and to Leah’s fellow midwives.Remember, if a performance has sold out, you can check back on Monday 20th May for returns!
