Pregnancy and Birth: Insights into 500 Years of Printed Texts and Archival Photography

This guide accompanies the display of printed birthing and midwifery manuals from 1513 to the present, in the Library (on the ground floor) of the RCOG from September - November 2015.

The posters displayed at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaeocologists capture some of the key moments preserved in the early printed books belonging to RCOG and in the archival photographs of the Royal College of Midwives.
