Building a Better Community Since 2007

Mary Kassmeier, Midwife on the Upper Missouri

Mary Kassmeier, a Montana midwife in the early 1900s, delivered babies at home and in the hospital, working independently and also with local physicians. This presentation will explore her practice and the collaborative relationships between healthcare providers common at the time. Historian Jennifer Hill and Midwife, Stacey Haugland, are working to record the forgotten histories of women like Kassmeier by collecting and preserving stories of ordinary women – from grandmothers and knowledgeable neighbors to professional midwives, nurses, and doctors – who cared for pregnant women and young mothers.
