New Lives by Kathleen Huggins

In riveting first-person narratives focused on the first 28 days of an infant's life, nurses remember the babies they’ve delivered and cared for. In turns joyous, humorous, and heartbreaking, these stories from neonatal and perinatal nurses, midwives, labor & delivery nurses, pediatric nurses, and others tell what it’s like to care for these small wonders at the starts of their lives.

Edited and introduced by a registered nurse, the book is a resource for both nurses and anyone who is fascinated by their extraordinary stories.
