I have always said that the inspiration for Old Favourites came from my grandmother. Whilst visiting her the other day she unearthed this treasure for me. This well read book was issued by the Department of Health, Victoria during the 1960's to new mothers. It is full of fabulous advice like " In the ante-natal period, a husband if possible should spare her (his wife) any emotional strain". It was interesting to find that a lot of the information still rings true today.
