Midwife on her way

She is on her way to the next expecting mother. On the back of her bike she has the bag with all the equipment a midwife need to deliver babies safe and sound.

The midwife is called to the young farm labourers wife who is in labour, and next she will continue to the town quarter where the ironmonger´s wife need her help. 

The midwife is part of a project illustrating how the midwife became an important part of the modern society emerging in the 1920's and 1930's. 

The project is made possible thanks to Svenska Barnmorskeförbundet and Vårdförbundet.
