The First Breath – a memoir of birth and medicine by Olivia Gordon

posted in: Blog | 0

Many of you will be aware of this book written by NSA member Olivia Gordon from when it was published last year. The First Breath is both Olivia’s story and her son’s story and tells the story of  “what happens when having a baby doesn’t go as planned and the extraordinary scientific advances and pioneering medical intervention bringing a new generation into the world; a generation of children without precedent, who would not have lived if they had been born only a few decades ago.”

It’s deservedly had excellent reviews nationally – “fascinating and moving”; “heartstopping”; “a triumph”; “absolutely gripping” –  and it is now being published in paperback on the 11th June, priced £9.99. You can pre-order a copy on Amazon Smile and the charity will get a proportion of the price. In fact a proportion of everything you spend through Amazon Smile can go to help the charity.
