Pampered Childbirth

Hello Dear Reader,
Grandpa (Wes) and Grandma (Mary) Carter’s third daughter and fourth child, LeAnn, was born in July of 1946. Mary’s mother, Caroline Hall, traveled to Provo and stayed with the other children while Mary was in the hospital with her baby. In those days new mothers were usually confined for ten days. I remember Mary saying by the time they were released from the hospital new mothers were weak from lying in bed so long. It took them longer to recover from the ordeal because they were so pampered. Those were the “good old days.”
