Summary New mothers face a barrage of advice from health practitioners to "social media influencers" telling them they're getting it wrong. From the magazines and personal papers of the 19th century to the security-compromising practice of Instagram feeds, this book provides a provocative look at typical medical and caregiving practices during pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum stages.--Adapted from back cover
