The inimitable story of Torie Finnane in life and legacy‪.‬ Life on the Land

    • Society & Culture

Torie Finnane was a midwife, one of the best they say.

As a person she was infectious, drawing people into her metaphorical embrace.

Through her work delivering babies she touched the lives of so many mother's in huge ways.

This story is heart breaking because Torie died.

She tragically lost her life just days after giving birth to her third child when she contracted bacterial meningitis.

And even though she's not physically here - this embrace, this touch that I mentioned lives on.

It's something her friends and family, especially her husband Liam Finnane actively keep alive though the Torie Finnane Foundation for women and babies, which was set up in her memory one year ago.

And so today, for the first time on Life on the Land we're speaking with a male - Liam Finnane - Torie's husband.
