Excerpt from Student's Guide to the Practice of Midwifery

This Manual is written mainly for the instruction of Students, though I hope it may sometimes be found of service to Practitioners whose scant leisure may make it difficult for them to consult larger works.

My endeavor has been to present as complete a view of obstetrics as the compass of a Manual would permit.

I have been compelled to touch somewhat briefly, yet not I trust inadequately, on points of minor interest, in order to dwell more fully on subjects of serious practical importance. The anatomical portion I have also treated briefly, as I presume that the Student is already practically acquainted with the details of the very foundation of the subject.

The physiology of Generation, the Mechanism of Labor, and the description of the operations of Midwifery, I have dealt with according to the relative importance of the several subjects.
