Duluth Birth History Oral History Project
Duluth women who gave birth prior to WW II were interviewed about their experiences. Birth locations, attitudes, techniques, labor support and new baby care were the focus for the questions. The interviews were transcribed into Microsoft Word and PDF documents. The documents are to be used by the applicant organization and other interested groups to aid mother and labor support and for other public outreach.
