The Art of Midwifery is the first book to examine midwives' lives and work across Europe in the early modern period. Drawing on a vast range of archival material from England, Holland, Germany, France, Italy and Spain, the contributors show the diversity in midwives' practices, competence, socio-economic background and education, as well as their public function and image. The Art of Midwifery is an excellent resource for students of women's history, social history and medical history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is the first book to examine midwives in the period before the much-discussed "decline" of midwifery in the nineteenth century, and examines the lives, work, and knowledge of Europes midwives, as well as their place in public life. . . .Many of the essays also explore the wider social, religious and political forces which had an impact on midwives, making the book very useful for those interested in women's history, the history of the family, the rise of state power, and popular religious culture, as well as medical history and medical sociology."
