Sara Wickham is back in The Midwives’ Cauldron!

I’m back in The Midwives’ Cauldron!

One morning last week, I got up very early and met up online with Katie James and Dr Rachel Reed, creators of The Midwives’ Cauldron podcast.

We chatted about the induction epidemic, the updated NICE guidance on induction of labour and my new book, In Your Own Time: how western medicine controls the start of labour and why this needs to stop.

And mentioned a surprising number of animals, including cats, hamsters and, of course, orangutans.

The result is a podcast that’s now freely available to all.

If you’d like to check it out, you can listen or download it at The Midwives’ Cauldron podcast page.

We hope you’ll enjoy, and if you’d like to know more about In Your Own Time, then all the details are here. Or go straight to Amazon.

Happy listening!
