Hard Pushed is the extraordinary story of actively serving NHS midwife Leah Hazard and the women she cares for. In celebration of the wonders of midwifery, we're asking readers and midwives everywhere to join the conversation and share their experiences using #SeeTheMidwife.
Leah Hazard is a serving NHS midwife. Having studied at Harvard, she left a career in television to pursue her lifelong interest in women’s health after the birth of her first daughter. She soon began working as a doula, supporting women in pregnancy and attending numerous births in homes and hospitals across the country. The birth of Leah’s second daughter prompted Leah to make the leap into midwifery. Since qualifying, she has worked in a variety of clinical areas within the NHS maternity services, including antenatal clinics, triage units and labour wards.
