The womb veil was a 19th-century American form of barrier contraception consisting of an occlusive pessary made of rubber. It was the forerunner to the modern diaphragm and cervical cap. The name was first used by Edward Bliss Foote in 1863 for the device he designed and marketed. "Womb veil" became the most common 19th-century American term for similar devices, and continued to be used into the early 20th century.
