Les sages-femmes dans l'Antiquité

Abstract : The graeco-roman antiquity doctors have produced a lot of medical literature, especially on gynecology and obstetrics. Many studies on the topic leave midwives in the shadow whereas they are central characters in women's reproductive health. This research offers to draw up an inventory of current knowledge about them, and to investigate, from a study of a corpus of sources, their social and professionnal status.
