Each step of a birth, natural related processes, and the assistance needed, are described in detail to help the student get an overall and precise understanding of the science of obstetrics. A practicing surgeon as well as publisher, the author was closely acquainted with Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. He was also the father of a physician and the beginning of a family of medical inclinations, and the son of theologists.
