Manage episode 359186056 series 3404747
Chapter 14 covers Miscarriage and Abortion. Or rather what an abortion was in 1900. You'd think this would be a heavy episode, but Ms. Mary's ideas on causes, cures and prevention are quite comical. Don't sleep in the same room as your husband, take a country side vacay for 3 months or more, and stay away from train rides. But also, chloroform is perfectly fine. Oh. And take cold showers... Without shocking your system. Sounds easy enough.
We want to thank the Dig History Podcast for their insightful episode on this subject, and if you'd like to check out Shannon's Book, you can check this link on amazon!
Trigger Warning- If the title or above synopsis doesn't give you a hint, we are covering miscarriages and abortion.
And also our colorful language like always.
Thanks for listening! - Emily & Krisi
