Death before Birth: Fetal Health and Mortality in Historical Perspective - new book

ISBN: 9780191571688

ID: 9780191571688

Fetal Health and Mortality in Historical Perspective Considering its importance, the history of fetal health and mortality remains a neglected area. Medical historians have tended to focus on maternal mortality and professional conflicts between midwives rather than on the unborn, while among the social scientists demographers and epidemiologists have until recently devoted most of their attention to infants and children. Death before Birth redresses this imbalance, redirecting attention to the fetus. A study of fetal health from the seventeenth century to the present day, it is the first book to offer an historical perspective on the subject and to combine both medical history and epidemiological and demographic research, using long-term and comparative perspectives, including a strong international comparative element, across both Europe and North America. The book not only provides an account of howfetal health and the risks facing the unborn (miscarriages, abortions, stillbirths etc) have changed, it also offers an interpretation of the causes, one that focuses on the role of obstetrics and the epidemiology of maternal infections. Along the way, it pays detailed attention to a host of related themes, such as varying cultural practices in the recognition of stillbirths the age pattern of mortality risk between conception and live birth comparative trends in late-fetal mortality and their causes fetal mortality and obstetric care during the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries and the contrasting approaches of the pathologists and `social epidemiologists` to the causes of fetal death. The book concludes witha study of the `fetus as patient`, focusing on issues surrounding the legalization of abortion in many Western countries and the public health challenges of persistently high mortality in less developed countries.
