From Witchcraft to Wisdom: A History of Obstetrics & Gynaecology in the British Isles tells the story of the development of childbearing over a period of nearly 400 years.
In characteristically forthright fashion, Professor Chamberlain tells how childbearing has gradually changed from an event so dangerous to a mother that many made their wills before labour began to the virtually pain-free deliveries of today.
