Babies for the Nation: The Medicalization of Motherhood in Quebec, 1910-1970 (English)

by Denyse Baillargeon

Format Paperback

Condition Brand New

Language English

Described as a 'necropolis for babies', the province of Quebec in the early 20th century recorded infant mortality rates, among French-speaking Catholics, that are among the highest in the Western world. This book sets out to understand how doctors are able to convince women to consult them and why mothers chose to follow their advice.

Publisher Description

Described by some as a 'necropolis for babies', the province of Quebec in the early twentieth century recorded infant mortality rates, particularly among French-speaking Catholics, that were among the highest in the Western world. This 'bleeding of the nation' gave birth to a vast movement for child welfare that paved the way for a medicalisation of childbearing. In this book, basing her analysis on extensive documentary research and more than fifty interviews with mothers, Denyse Baillargeon sets out to understand how doctors were able to convince women to consult them, and why mothers chose to follow their advice. Her analysis considers the medical discourse of the time, the development of free services made available to mothers between 1910 and 1970, and how mothers used these services.Showing the variety of social actors involved in this process (doctors, nurses, women's groups, members of the clergy, private enterprise, the state, and the mothers themselves), this study delineates the alliances and the conflicts that arose between them in a complex phenomenon that profoundly changed the nature of childbearing in Quebec.

Author Biography

Review

"Originally published in 2004, Denyse Baillargeon's Un Quibec en mal d'enfonu has finally been translated for an English-speaking audience. Babies for the Nation offers a riveting study of the medicalisation of maternity and maternal discourses in Quebec over the course of the twentieth century, bringing attention to an issue largely elided within existing studies of Quebec. Babies for the Nation is an indispensable resource for social historians interested in the growth of maternal and medical ideologies in French-Canada across the twentieth century, shedding light on an issue left largely unexplored until now. Similarly, Baillargeon's focus on the political movements and welfare groups that arose to help Structure and safeguard new procedures and discourses also make this an interesting read for political historians concerned with the rise of state intervention in the home." - Sarah Galletly, University of Strathclyde, British Journal of Canadian Studies, Volume 23 (Number 2), 2010
