About the book:

 

Labor Pains recounts a timely story sure to be loved by today’s nurses as well as those yearning to be delivered into a world where the main ingredient in medicine is caring.

Paige O'Neill, is a labor and delivery nurse, who works at Mercy Hospital where the mysteries of childbirth unfold. The trouble is, Paige desperately wants more children but can't seem to have another of her own. Once a small community hospital, Mercy General becomes part of the huge medical monopoly, Merci-Corp. Where in spite of protest, dangerous working conditions caused by short staffing put patient lives in jeopardy. This, along with a secret from her past, adds to Nurse O'Neill's tailspin into the deadly disease of alcoholism. A tragic death turns Paige's world upside down, and a newfound friend helps her discover the truth of Merci-Corp’s dark plans.  Only the strong will survive the birth of this corporate giant, which forces the nurses to make some surprising changes of their own.
