Home for Unwed Mothers


Posted By: Marla Williams (email)

My mother was born in Iowa City, Iowa on 1-5-34 to an unwed mother (Beatrice Millmeyer,age 22) from Fort Madison. We believe she may have lived in a home for unwed mothers or with someone in Iowa City until she gave birth at Mercy Hospital in January of 1934.

Can you please tell me if there were any homes for poor unwed mothers in Iowa City, IA or nearby towns in 1934 and whether there are any records at all or how I would find out more information.
