Events from the year 1711 in Sweden



  • Great Northern War plague outbreak
  • The profession of midwifery is regulated and all future midwives are to be licensed by the Collegium Medicum after having been tutored by an already licensed midwife for a period of two years and passed the examination of a doctor before being allowed to practice their trade (until 1777, this applied only to the capital): the midwives are also banned from using instruments.[1]
