Riverina Midwives

Riverina Midwives - from the Mountains to the Plains written by long term Hamlin support Dr Mavis Gaff-Smith is a collection of stories of the hard-work, courage, improvision, humour and grief which accompanied the settlement of one of Australia's richest rural areas. 

It is a tribue to the women who went into shepherds' huts, fettlers' camps and settlers' tents, bark shelters and iron sheds, and to the women who helped them to bring generations of healthy young Australians into the world.
