Death Before Birth: Fetal Health and Mortality in Historical Perspective

2.5  ·  Rating Details ·  2 Ratings  ·  1 Review
Considering its importance, the history of fetal health and mortality remains a neglected area. Medical historians have tended to focus on maternal mortality and professional conflicts between midwives rather than on the unborn, while among the social scientists demographers and epidemiologists have until recently devoted most of their attention to infants and children.
