A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Midwife Collection - America's foremost pioneer in the development of midwifery was Mary Breckinridge. Born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1881, Mary lost her first husband and two children to early death, and essentially became a nurse to channel her energies to "raise the status of childhood everywhere." As a public health nurse in WWI she became convinced that the nurse-midwife concept could help children in rural America. After additional nursing and midwifery training, she settled in rural Kentucky in 1925. Her service became the Frontier Nursing Service in 1928. The design revolved around a central hospital and one physician with many nursing outposts designed to compensate for the lack of reliable roads and transportation. The service featured nurses on horseback able to reach remote areas in all kinds of weather. In five years the FNS reached more than 1,000 rural families in an area of over 700 square miles and staff members formed an organization that became the American Association of Nurse-Midwives. Another part of FNS, the Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing has trained hundreds of midwives. The original hospital, now the Mary Breckinridge Hospital, still fulfills its mission today. In the United States and many foreign countries, the concept flourishes. It's all about children. On her deathbed Mary said, "The glorious thing about it is that it has worked. Midwives!
