Is it a girl or boy? How much did they weigh? How was the delivery? All of these questions are common on the birth of a baby today in the Western World. They assume that childbirth is not dangerous for the mother or baby. However, this has changed markedly over the past century which is a reflection of medical and social changes. In the UK, there was a steep decline in maternal mortality from the 1930s.
Join us at the Old Operating Theatre Museum for this one off occasion when the Herb Garret will transform itself to accommodate a very special Mad Hatter's Tea Party! It would be only appropriate that this experience will have specialty teas, including herbal ones inspired by our Herb Garret. In addition, our guests will be able to choose from a range of amazing homemade baked goods and savoury treats to nibble on.
