Initially published by the Children's Bureau in 1913, this pamphlet has been revised frequently. Its purpose is to point out the importance of medical care during pregnancy. Comfortable pregnancies, easy labor, and better care for their new infants are the usual concerns of prospective mothers. Consequently, this 1962 edition of "Prenatal Care" tells parents about the succeeding stages of pregnancy, about childbirth and the care of the newborn, and also shows how each family member can share in the preparation for the baby. Suggestions include how to arrange for medical and hospital care, and helpful advice is proffered concerning nutrition, exercise, and personal hygiene. (DP)
