Eastman and Russell
Obviously this is a slam dunk as far as weeding goes. Not only is it outdated but the condescending advice is ridiculous. There is an admonition against taking advice from your bridge club and only talk to the doctor. My particular favorite piece of advice is to be kind to the men who are training as doctors. Too many women get mad at them. I will admit that in the throes of labor one might be a tad irritated with men in general. I personally may or may not have threatened castration.) I guess they got their feelings hurt.
There is also a downplay of the “baby blues” which we now understand as post-partum depression. The book says it’s nothing serious, and eventually you will feel better. There is also discussion of pain killers with some pretty serious narcotics.
