Maternity: Letters from Working-Women Collected by the Women's Co-operative Guild edited by Margaret Llewelyn Davies

| /

These humbling autobiographical portraits are as valuable today as they were almost 100 years in their own words these women tell of the horrors of bringing ten children into the world in as many years; of not being able to afford a doctor or nurse; of the physical and emotional strain of bringing up large families with very little help. These extraordinary and inspiring stories of poverty and hardship remind us of the astounding endurance of woman and of the strength of a mother's love.
