Abstracts
Through the analysis of the accounting records of the Dubrovnik Hospitale misericordiae and comparison with similar processes elsewhere in Europe, the article examines the context of the establishment and operation of the first lying-in hospital in Dubrovnik as a result of the specific social policy of the Dubrovnik Republic. Although the sources generally conceal the identity of the parturients, the daily rhythm of their admission, delivery and discharge is analyzed. Midwives contributed significantly to the social and medical care of the unwed pregnant women and parturients admitted to the foundling hospital.
