This volume, issued under the direction of Dr. George W. Kosmak, provides in simple form instructions to prospective mothers. It concerns not only the care of the mother before the child is born but also the preparation for the baby, the after-care of mother and baby, and a chapter on training the child. The book is quite reliable and presented in such a form as to make it appeal particularly to the group it is planned to reach. The Maternity Center Association represents a combined medical and lay effort under local auspices which approaches the ideal in social work in this field.
