Professor Sir John Dewhurst was a pioneer in pediatric and adolescent gynecology. During his years at Queen Charlotte's Hospital for Women in London (1967-1985), he made it an international center for postgraduate training in OB-GYN. He wrote classic medical textbooks as well as a popular history of midwifery and the Royal Family. An obstetrical history of British royalty from the Stuarts to Queen Victoria. Includes interesting details on both the social and medical aspects, including diet, medicines and practices used. Features the rise of the so-called "man-midwives" such as the Chamberlens, who designed and kept secret the obstetrical forceps for use in breech births.
