In the 18th century, the training to become a midwife or obstetrician was taken to a higher level in Western Europe. Exercise books were published to support the education, such as this “Vroedkundige oeffenschool” by Jan Bernard Jacobs from 1784. Jacobs was a master surgeon from 1761. The book is characterised by its didactic structure. Very special are the realistic illustrations, which show how to deal with problematic births. Jacobs' book was often given as a prize book to laureates of midwife trainings.
