French Mothers… The Best!

Pamela Druckerman is bringing back memories….
I had my children in America, and yes! I thought the American way was quite different from the French way. The Lamaze classes attended by studious couples were a shocking introduction. Did I really want an epidural? I needed to find one of very few obstetrician ready to do it… At the hospital – for 48 hours!- the baby was wrapped up in cloth like baby Jesus in his cradle… and of course I was told that 6 months was the minimum time for breast-feeding, and at the office pumping milk was a given ! Culture shock!
