RESEARCHER SEEKS PRIMARY SOURCE MATERIAL ON MIDWIFERY IN OREGON

Sarah Taylor is researching the topic of childbirth and midwifery in Oregon. She is interested in reviewing primary source materials, including letters, journals or records of childbirth that may exist in the collections of Oregon’s many museums and archives. She is interested in gathering additional information on immigrant midwives trained in Europe or Asia; Irish washerwomen who worked at forts and sometimes served as midwives; and other documentation that demonstrates the many ways women helped one another during childbirth. She will present some of her findings at a Midwifery History event in Portland on May 5 as well as the Oregon Historical Society’s symposium titled “Regulating Birth”.  If your organization has material to share, email sarahsojourner at mac.com<mailto:sarahsojourner at mac.com> or call (503) 805-4680.
