Wow, that article read like a satire. I'm thinking, "this can't really be for real, right?" {{{sigh}}} Sure it's better now that doctors know to wash their hands but did she point out how moving women into the hospital in the first place increased the maternal & neonatal mortality rate? Just my opinion, but those women & babies would have preferred to be at home and SURVIVE it. And yes, the !'s She's really really excited about something. I personally love reading anything about the history of childbirth and found Witches, Midwives, and Nurses: A History of Women Healers a fantastic read (although infuriating at the same time b/c the truth of how things have been). It's more of a pamphlet than a book - you could easily read it in an hour. I'd highly recommend it to anyone wanting historically accurate information.
