Birth Images from the 1800's


  1. I remember seeing this when I took my doula training class.

    It reminds me of how annoyed I get when TV shows/movies set in the 16th century (like The Other Boleyn Girl and The Tudors) portray women pushing on their backs in bed when they give birth. They should be on a birth stool!
