Abstract

Antenatal education for pregnant women emerged from the vision of health care workers who were concerned about high maternal and infant mortality rates in the early 1900s. At the time Minnie Randell’s Training for Childbirth was published in 1941, there was also an interest in promoting a ‘fitter population’ in Britain. Minnie Randell was Principal at the School of Massage at St Thomas’s Hospital, London, and an important influence for physiotherapists regarding antenatal and postnatal education.
