I have just been told that my great great grandmother supported herself and
her family by practising as a midwife in the Nelson area, probably around
the 1880's to early 1900's.
Can anyone suggest any possible ways of verifying this story? Were midwives
registered in those days?
Any help greatly appreciated.
