A Recognised Occupation For Centuries

Women have been helped through labour and pregnancy for thousands of years in every culture on every continent. Since Ancient Egypt, midwifery has been a recognised female occupation as can be seen in the Ebers Papyrus records, which dates from 1900 to 1550 BC. But the actual word ‘midwife’ dates back to around 1300 – mid means ‘together with’, so the altogether it means ‘together with woman’.

Good Choice!

London - Interesting Fact!

It’s against the law to die in the Houses of Parliament.
Why? The Houses of Parliament are a Royal Palace, and anyone who dies there is entitled to a state funeral. It was voted the most absurd law in Britain, narrowly beating a Liverpool legislation that bans women from going topless in public, unless they work in a tropical fish store!
We really look forward to meeting you.
