"The American practice of "hospitalization" for the momentous occasion of the birth of a baby has greatly increased during the past twenty to twenty-five years. But this year - and for as long as the war lasts - hospital facilities, especially in congested areas, are becoming more limited and the number of doctors and nurses available in most localities is being greatly reduced. It is therefore important for every woman who is expecting a baby to consider the possiblity of having her baby at home. It is also well for her to be prepared for an unexpectedly early delivery or illness. This book has been especially prepared to help you plan for your baby in the event that it may be born at home, or that you cannot remain the usual ten days or two weeks in the hospital."
