from “Radiant Motherhood” by Marie Stopes 1920

“the standard of dressing for the prospective mother should be garments of the  lightest wool and silk if possible, so lightly hung that a butterfly can walk the length of her body without tearing its wings…. If she is wise she will work in direct contact with sunlit earth. Gardening ensures the truest sense of physical well-being.”
