A Highland midwife's book about her experiences is topping bestseller lists.
Maria Anderson says she has helped to bring around 1000 babies into the world over the past 20 years, half of which was spent working at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness.
Sales figures for her new book, Tales of a Midwife, are now reaching into the tens of thousands.
The book has featured on the Sunday Times bestseller list for more than a month, something the midwife puts down to people's fascination with what goes on in the delivery room.
The book describes some of Ms Anderson's most memorable moments in the hospital, including once when she broke her arm during delivery.
She also tells of how, as a young and inexperienced midwife, she fainted three times during her first three deliveries.
Despite the popularity of her first foray into the literary world, she says she has no intention of giving up her day job and wants to encourage more young midwives into the profession.
