The history of the Royal Women's Hospital in Melbourne is the history of women in the age of modern medicine. It is a story that begins in the dawn of anaesthesia, before the revolutions brought about by aspesis, antisepsis and antibiotics, concluding in our own time with AIDS and IVF. This is both a social and medical history. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
