With the current home birth rate in the UK at a mere 2.5 per cent, this session will look at the Wellcome Library holdings on the history of midwifery and some drawbacks of the rise of the male presence in the birth chamber, challenging the perception of a hospital birth as the only safe option for a pregnant woman.
