Mary Breckinridge

by Melanie Beals Goan, Mary Breckinridge Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Mary Breckinridge books, In 1925 Mary Breckinridge (1881-1965) founded the Frontier Nursing Service (FNS), a public health organization in eastern Kentucky providing nurses on horseback to reach families who otherwise would not receive health care. Through this public health organization, she introduced nurse-midwifery to the United States and created a highly successful, cost-effective model for rural health care delivery that has been replicated throughout the world. In this first comprehensive biography of the FNS founder, Melanie Beals Goan provides a revealing look at the challenges Breckinridge faced as she sought reform and the contradictions she embodied. Goan explores Breckinridge's perspective on gender roles, her charisma, her sense of obligation to live a life of service, her eccentricity, her religiosity, and her application of professionalized, science-based health care ideas. Highly intelligent and creative, Breckinridge also suffered from depression, was by modern standards racist, and fought progress as she aged--sometimes to the detriment of those she served. Breckinridge optimistically believed that she could change the world by providing health care to women and children. She ultimately changed just one corner of the world, but her experience continues to provide powerful lessons about the possibilities and the limitations of reform.

She Who Is Like A Mare

by Karen Kotrba, She Who Is Like A Mare Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download She Who Is Like A Mare books, Founded in 1925 by Mary Breckinridge, the Frontier Nursing Service (FNS) brought much needed professional health care to mountain families of Eastern Kentucky. The FNS nurses, trained as midwives, provided public health services and trauma care as needed. She who is like a mare : poems of Mary Breckinridge and the Frontier Nursing Service uses historical research and speculative imaginings to create the voices and tell the stories of the nurses and their patients. Skillfully rendered dramatic monologues document the remarkable history of the Frontier Nursing Service in eastern Kentucky in the early twentieth century. Through the imagined voices of the founder, Mary Breckinridge, and the nurse-midwives she trained to travel the back roads of Kentucky on horseback, Kotrba brings a whole community to life. With a sure command of the multiple tones and mixed dictions of the region, she gives voice to a wide range of characters.
