Medical Practices in Rural Romania: The Birth

Bărbulescu, Elena (Articol)

“The paper is making a review on the information available in the manuscripts of Archive of folklore in Cluj-Napoca, regarding the homebirth at the beginning of the 20th century. The manuscripts are the results of an ethnographic inquiry on the topic of birth and childhood in rural areas of Romania. Seen from today, the information from manuscripts is amended or on the contrary debated with some of the ethnographic data on the topic gathered by the author in the past two decades.”
