The problem then is a social one - society is NOT family friendly. It is money-friendly. The family bears the brunt, the women and children of a family especially. Thus it is, thus it has ever been.
The invention of formula was largely the same thing (mama had to work, boobs had to go into the factory with her, baby had to eat SOMEthing). In fact there have been many examples really haven't there? Even a lot of the (useful in their needful place) birth interventions women and babies suffer nowadays are for expedience and money-saving (speed things up, get mama out and the next woman in). If you knew me (militant feminist) you'd laugh at me - apparently my scrutiny reveals that EVERYTHING is a feminist issue!
I've missed so much on this thread, trolls, scarlet fever (we just had that too, and my mother had had rheumatic fever and suffered lifelong heart damage so i got DD1 the penicillin for it, which was annoying, only the 2nd time in her life she'd had them), discrimination (i'm in the UK where people might notice, if they have to check medical history, you're unvaxed, but no-one really cares/discriminates because of it). But i'm really enjoying reading it :D
