Twilight Sleep

A Simple Discoveries
in Painless Childbirth

Individual links to all 8 chapters

Dr. J. W. Williams was a gynecological surgeon employed by Johns Hopkins Hospital (Baltimore, MD). Dr. JW W was served as Chief of Obstetrics from 1899 to 1911 and Dean of the JH School of Medicine from 1911 to 1919, and full-time professor of obstetrics from 1919 to his untimely death in 1931.

You can also follow the link at the bottom of each page to the next chapter in the series.

I strongly recommend reading chapters 5, 6, 7, and 8,  first, then go back to the beginning of the book and read chapters 1, 2, 3, and 4.

The second half of the book reveals the motives and methods and thus provides the context for his descriptions of Twilight Sleep drugs and why he thinks they should be used.
