I am donating my entire midwifery library to Boma la Mama. It’s a little hard to let go but it will be so great to see them get a second life in Tanzania. My current practice usually involves checking official guidelines and research online and consulting with experts, so actually the books don’t get used much anymore. I started to collect these books in 2004 when my midwifery journey was just beginning. I became a doula to get some actual experience attending births and supporting women; then in 2006 I started the midwifery education program. Many of the books were required for school and I went through them all over and over for each of the learning topics. Some favourites such as Ina May’s books, The Birth House, Baby Catcher, the Red Tent will remain in my personal library to be read again and again.
