Childbirth in History
SINCE THE 1980s I’ve been researching and collecting examples of childbirth as it’s depicted in art and medical illustration, from pre-history to the present. I’m currently working on a revised edition of Mother and Midwives, an illustrated book on the history of birth as depicted in art. I hope it will be available for purchase in 2017. In the meantime, here is a gallery of a few of the over 200 images I've collected.
