This review is from: Quick, Boil Some Water: The Story of Childbirth in our Grandmother's Day: Volume 1 (Kindle Edition)
I read this book one rainy afternoon. It is so well written and put together with interesting magazine snippets from the time. The mother's memoirs are addictive. I thought I'll just read one more, then do some housework. Well, just another one, etc., until I had finished the whole thing. My children were born in the early 70's when things were a little better, but not entirely! I loved the piece about Elizabeth the Spina Bifida baby, what a brave girl.
