Francis James Browne (1879–1963) is remembered as the foremost obstetrician of his day and is widely recognised as the founder of modern antenatal care. His book Antenatal and Postnatal Care became a bible to many generations of medical students and junior obstetricians. He was one of the Founding Fellows of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and in 1960 was awarded the Blair-Bell Medal for his significant contribution to the specialty. In this biography, Herbert Reiss presents a fascinating glimpse into the life of a great man.
