Find out how the evolution of the science of birthing aided the entire field of medicine and the development of the hospital as we know it. In what year did hospital births finally exceed at home births in the United States? What was the technology aiding the American “baby boom”? Exhibit highlights include Dr. J. Dudley Talbot’s original medical bag, vintage obstetrical instruments and related equipment.
