Rueff was a follower of Martin Luther and, although he was "primarily known as a physician, surgeon, and lithotomist, he was also a poet and writer of folk songs. … Much of Rueff's advice stems from that of classical writers or is taken from Rosslin's Rosegarten. A great deal is also very primitive to modern eyes. But it made a start at a time when midwifery had previously been strictly a woman's affair" (Dunn, p. 222). ?
