Frau Cramer

b. 1655, Holland; d. 1746, Holland

Frau Cramer, the student of prominent physicians and the wife of a doctor, began an obstetric practice of her own and wrote detailed case histories of each delivery she conducted. Her journal, which accounts for some fifty years of her practice, was given to the Medical Association of Holland. It was published in 1926.
