This book is based on the experience of the Maternity Center Association during the last fourteen years. It contains chapters on prenatal care and examination and advice to the expectant mother as to diet, clothes and choice of a physician. The concluding chapters deal with the babies' clothes and after-care and child training.

The book is full of valuable information to the mother, written in a simple, convincing way and profusely illustrated with clear drawings. It is an excellent book to advise the expectant mother to read.
