Excerpt from The Mother and Her Child The larger part Of the work was originally written by Dr. Lena K. Sadler, with certain chapters by Dr. William S. Sadler, but in the revision and re-arrangement of the manuscript so much work was done by each on the contributions of the other, that it was deemed best to bring the book out under joint author ship. The book is divided into three principal parts: Part I, deal ing with the experience of pregnancy from the beginning of expectancy to the convalescence of labor; Part II, dealing with the infant from its first day of life up to the weaning time; Part III, taking up the problems of the nursery from the weaning to the important period of adolescence. The advice given in this work is that which we have tried out by experience - both as parents and physicians - and we pass it on to mothers, fathers, and nurses with the belief that it will be of help in their efforts at practical and scientific child culture. We believe, also, that the expectant mother will be aided and encouraged in bearing the burdens which are common to motherhood by the advice and instruction offered. While we have drawn from our own professional and per sonal experience in the preparation of this book, we have also drawn freely from the present-day literature dealing with the subjects treated, and desire to acknowledge our indebtedness to the various writers and authorities.
