Jane Sharp entry: Overview screen.
From what she says about her career, JS must have been born before about 1620.
JS's textbook The Midwives Book; or, The Whole Art of Midwifery Discovered . . .
was entered in the Term Catalogues
. It was published that year, dedicated to the "Celebrated Midwives of Great Britain and Ireland," whom Sharp calls her sisters.
The date of JS's death is not known: it was presumably some time after 1671 when her book was first published.
A fourth, heavily revised edition of JS's textbook of 1671 appeared, as The Complete Midwife's Companion
, with her name on the title-page.
A new edition of The Midwives Book
, JS's textbook of 1671, was reported.
