Summary:

Just as she was present in the very first moments of life as a midwife, Jennifer Worth also went on to witness the different experiences of patients drawing towards the end of their days. As a nurse and ward sister, she came across stories that were often poignant or touching. There were moments of great warmth, humour and humanity, from the businessman who set up office in a hospital broom cupboard to the family divided by a decision nobody could make. Jennifer began to ask questions about the way we have moved away from a natural acceptance of death and what are we so afraid of?
