"A woman to be a mother seems stunned and in fear that the contents of her womb, uterus, or matrix materializing matter into her child may produce an infant harmed by medications or other teratogens." (details from "History of Medicine Mosaic"), 1960 A. Conrad Albrizio ( 1894 - 1973) Lobby University Hospital of the University of South Alabama, Mobile, Alabama, USA
