Woman and Childrens Health
Women and childrens health was very very poor because lots of horrific things would happen.
There was a little supply of water because the workers would of made the creeks muddy.This would mean that it would be very difficult for them to clean themselves. There were only a little bit of doctors or chemists in the goldfields. Most of them were unqualified. Many children died by dysentry or cholrea. So people built a cemetary for children called the pennyweight flats childrens cemetary. More than 200 children were buried there. When women gave birth to their child another woman would help her. Lots of women would pass away while giving birth to their child/children. Some of these illnesses were diptheria, whooping cough, measles, typhoid and much much more.
