VIRGINIA HUMANITIES RESEARCH FELLOW TALK Finding Virginia’s Historical Midwives

When: Tue., Jan. 18, 12-1 p.m.

From the beginning of time until World War ll, the attendance of a midwife at the birth of each new community member was a near-universal experience, although one rarely acknowledged today. Join us in person at the Library as Virginia Humanities Research Fellow D'Anne Graham talks about the Virginia midwives she has discovered in her research and how their experience informs access to midwifery today.
