Notes
Contents: Publications of the Council for Social Service of the Church of England in Canada -- Infant Mortality.
"`Why do three times as many children per hundred births die in infancy in Ottawa than in Hampstead in England ? Why do more infants per hundred die in Fort William and Windsor and Kingston than in such wretched London slums such as Shoreditch, Bermondsey and Bethnal Green. -- Reconstruction, 1918.' It is high time that we in Canada should face the facts as to our rate of infant mortality, and having realized the real state of affairs, bestir ourselves to remedy them (p. 3)." "Generally speaking, infant mortality may be traced to specific causes outside of the infant itself. That is to say, between 80 and 90 per cent. of all children born enter this world in a healthy condition with a good fighting chance of surviving. The reasons why they do not survive are as follows: -- 1. The fact that their mothers are forced to work outside the home. 2. Poverty of the parents, not necessarily allied to the first reason, or accompanied by it. 3. Ignorance on the part of the mothers, generally but not always accompanied by improper feeding, and the failure of the mother to nurse her own child. 4. Intemperance of one or both of the parents. 5. Disease (p. 5)."
Contents divided into sub-sections: The Protest of the Doctors -- Reasons for Infant Mortality -- Mothers Working Outside the Home -- Poverty and Infant Mortality -- Infant Mortality and Eugenics -- The Other Side of the Argument -- An Examination of the Case -- Improper Feeding -- Housing and Sanitation -- Intemperance of Parents -- What a Doctor Did in Fort William.
