Dear WHOM Colleagues,

In case you want to add some global dimension to your teaching on women’s healthcare, a wonderful study on Egyptian midwives is available for free access:

Also, in case the word isn’t spreading, all issues of Medical History are now available for open access on PubMed Central.  (Lots of other medical journals are there, too, and some older ones have valuable medical-historical pieces.)

Happy teaching!
