Summary
  • The history of Sydney's pioneering maternity hospital is also a history of medical care for women in Australia, from the days of untrained midwives to alternative birthing units
  • "Crown Street Women's Hospital was the largest women's hospital in NSW. Located in the heart of Surry Hills, it was a referral hospital for women throughout the State and a leading teaching centre for obstetricians and midwives. Affectionately known as 'Crown Street', an essential part of its role was caring for the poorest and most marginalised women in Sydney...The announcement of Crown Street's closure resulted in public uproar and demonstrations in the streets. This comprehensive history reflects Sydney's rich past, and reveals why Crown Street's 90 years had such a powerful impact on so many." -- Back cover
