Our new exhibition, Seeing the Unseen: A history of imaging the pregnant uterus, sourced from The University Library’s Rare Books & Special Collections, features significant works that aided the professional development of midwifery and the practice of obstetrics between the 16th and 19th centuries.
Intended to assist in the instruction of practising midwives, the works describe and illustrate the anatomy of the gravid (pregnant) uterus, as well as discussing possible treatments during complicated labour.
The exhibition was curated by Ben Higginbotham, a fourth-year student in the Faculty of Medicine and Health at the University of Sydney.
Seeing the Unseen is on display at the SciTech Library and Fisher Library (Level 3) until 30 July 2021.

Thank you, I am a feminist and also working around an exhibition (about writing letters to artists in response to their artworks) about seeing the unseen – would love to connect with the people who curated this show or how the can happen?
Hi Samantha, I’ve emailed you with the curator’s contact information.
