Lovie is the true story of Lovie Beard Shelton, an elderly white midwife who delivered some 4000 babies in more than fifty years of practice in rural eastern North Carolina. A local celebrity and self-invented folk hero, Lovie is a staunch defender of home birth, natural birth and a no-nonsense approach to labor and delivery.” A quote from Lisa Yarger’s book Lovie: the Story of a Southern Midwife and an Unlikely Friendship on Lovie Shelton, a Washington resident and local legend.
