Contemporary Issues Discussion: New Motherhood

1830s Image of Mothers 1830s Image of Mothers
Maria Bradford gave birth to her first child in late 1831, and she wrote to her mother shortly afterwards describing her childbirth, recovery, and longing for motherly advice. All are welcome to a discussion with historians, medical practitioners, and new mothers to explore how this stirring letter evokes transcending questions about the birthing experience, infancy, and the postpartum period. Join in the conversation by sharing your own history and personal reflections with other U-M and local community members over a complimentary lunch.

Registration is required; please register by May 7 at myumi.ch/Lqoje (or call the Clements Library at 734-647-0864). Children are welcome.
