Check out the link below.... just click on the title it will take you to the website; it is a 1939 educational film, a class of expectant mothers practise ante-natal exercises designed by Kathleen Vaughn at the London County Council's Paddington Hospital. See the midwives uniform and the exercises.... I do not in anyway recommend these exercises.... I was just sharing a piece of history.. Do you think times have changed?
