About Me

I am a midwife turned historian of medicine. My research sits at the nexus of the medicine, gender studies, material culture, and eighteenth-century France. My in-progress book manuscript explores local socio-political negotiations around the widespread implementation of midwifery training courses across France and the Atlantic in the eighteenth century.
