Annotation:
The personal story of the midwife Ludmila Kapalínová, née Kubíková, of Sobín (1780–1860) casts light on the turning period of the understanding of the role of midwives – companions of women in their difficult moments which are connected with the very fundaments of life here on earth. Ludmila, from 1805 a wife of a small farmer in Sobín and a tenfold mother of living or dead children, left to study midwifery at the university in Prague in 1824 for nearly half a year at the age of 44 (and pregnant for the last time).
