For the UK an excellent study is by Lara V. Marks, Model Mothers. Jewish
Mothers and Maternity Provision in East London 1870-1939. Oxford Historical
Monographs, Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1994. ISBN 0-19-820454-X.
(Mrs Alice MODEL was instrumental in improving facilities for Jewish
women,. She was known as the 'Florence Nightingale of the Jewish
Community'.)

I notice that on pages 95-6 of Lara Marks's book there are several
references to publications on
the subject of immigrant midwives in America, specifically, New York,
Chicago, Wisconsin, and Massachusetts., some of them contemporary studies.
