Motherhood in the Old South: Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Infant Rearing by Sally G. McMillen



An account of the childbearing and rearing responsibilities which consumed, often literally, the lives of women in the old south. The author explores the social, political and medical influences of the time that led women to assume fervently the full responsibility for their sacred occupation.
