History of the Materité Prizes

For concrete representation of Perinatal Medicine, in the 1970s Prof. Saling selected the Maternité sculpture by Parisian artist Madame Ellen Guastalla, which then was chosen as a statue for the German and later also for the European Maternité Prize.

More details of the history of the European Maternité Prize are in this extract (PDF file) of an article by Prof. Saling from the year 1996.
