The government intended the Female Factory at Parramatta to be a place of retribution and punishment of recalcitrant convict women and a place of refuge and accommodation for convict women arriving in Sydney. It was notorious as a place of mayhem and disorder. This presentation by Lesley Potter will consider the presence and employment of midwives at the Factory.
