The New Pregnancy
The Active Woman’s Guide to Work, Legal Rights, Health Care, Travel, Sports, Dress, Sex and Emotional Well-Being
Lichtendorf and Gillis
I am quite sure this book was quite “edgy” in its time. My mom had her last baby in 1970. My mom tried to talk to the doctor about her delivery and I believe the repsonse was to just shut up and let him do his job. I think my mom is still pissed at the doctor.
I could argue that by 1990, and my first child, there was some improvement. Pregnant employees still weren’t treated with open arms by employers.
I would put it in the category of books like Our Bodies, Ourselves. For an archive collection, maybe it’s a keeper, but for a public library, weed it.
Glad to be out of the baby business,
