Bridey’s Birth Control
Bridey’s Birth Control is an excerpt from the bestselling novel, The Badger Riot (2008) and is set in the logging community of Badger, Newfoundland in the 1930’s. Bridey Sullivan is attended by a loving and expert Mi’kmaq midwife, Mrs. Annie as she delivers her first child. As the babies keep coming, Bridey’s health becomes compromised. At a loss of what to do to keep her health and to quietly prevent a dangerous pregnancy, Bridey seeks advice from her neighbor, Mrs. Crawford, who has some words of advice for the young mother.
