Montgomery Maternity: Pregnancy, Childbirth and Infant Care at the Turn of the 20th C.

Curated by Caitlin White Magill
Opened September 7
, 2013

Babies are born in Montgomery County every day.  But how was this experience different 50, 100, or  150 years ago?  Our new exhibit takes a look at what’s changed (and what hasn’t) for mothers, fathers, doctors, and the babies themselves through artifacts, documents and images from our extensive 19th and 20th century medical collections.  Medicines, tools, textbooks, clothing, and more illuminate developments in maternity, childbirth, and infant care.
