Abstract

Our vision of maternal death in childbed is conditioned by sources which foreground vicissitudes in the lives of aristocrats.

Where testimonies deal with commoners, death seems to be much less frequent than could be expected.  Possible reasons for this divergence between the spheres of the nobles and commoners will be discussed in this study. Moreover, it raises the question of the impact of epidemies and diseases on the course of pregnancy and birth.
