KIRKUS REVIEW

Dr. Robert J. Walsh, obstetrician, Dr. A. J. Vignec, pediatrician, and Dr. Robert P. Odenwald, psychiatrist, each contribute frank and informal chapters to a book which is especially suitable for the Catholic mother who is expecting her first child. The introduction, concerning the spiritual considerations of motherhood, is written by the Very Rev. Monsignor George A. Kelly, Director of the Family Life Bureau of the Archdiocese of New York and author of The Catholic Marriage Manual. Also included here are a list of briefly defined medical terms which are especially pertinent during pregnancy; a comprehensive calorie chart for the expectant mother; and a large list of possible babies' names, each with its original source and meaning, plus the feast day of the saint from whom the name is derived.
