Self admits, the plot did seem a little far-fetched when she first heard it, but Christina Sweeney-Baird explains why about halfway through, and it is not completely out of left field.

Lucy, who’d only been a midwife for fifteen months when the Plague hit: “Of the two-hundred eighty-four boys I’ve helped to deliver in the last six months, twenty-nine have survived.”

Readers attend a live birth on p. 209, and everyone in the delivery room (including this reader) is painfully holding her breath until the determination of sex is made.
