The Rise and Fall of National Women’s Hospital: A History .

In this major history, Linda Bryder traces the annals of National Womens Hospital over half a century in order to tell a wider story of reproductive health. She uses the varying perspectives of doctors, nurses, midwives, consumer groups, and patients to show how together their dialog shaped the nature of motherhood and womens health in 20th-century New Zealand. Natural childbirth and rooming in, artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization, sterilization and abortion: womens health and reproduction went through a revolution in the 20th century as scientific advances confronted ethical and political dilemmas. In New Zealand, the major site for this revolution was National Womens Hospital. Established in Auckland in 1946, with a purpose-built building that opened in 1964, National Womens was the home of medical breakthroughs scandals. This chronicle covers them all.
