Sobre o livro
'Childcare and Mortality in the London Foundling Hospital, 1741-1800.' Left to the mercy of the world. This book provides a far fuller investigation of babies and children at the London Foundling Hospital than has ever been attempted before. The book looks at how institutions and charities worked: pathways to infant and child health, the determinations of infant mortality in a time of failing mortality among the young, and women's work and nurturance of the young.
