For over a century, the city of Glasgow has experienced some of the worst health outcomes in Europe. During the twentieth century, the city had some of the highest maternal and infant mortality rates in Britain. While parts of women’s maternity journeys have received historical attention, there remains much more research to be done if we are to fully understand the diversity of women’s experiences of pregnancy and motherhood. This gap partly reflects the nature of many archival collections, where information about maternal and infant health remains hidden within other collections and consequently, does not always appear in searches.
