cuii great deal:
What effeet don pregnancy have
on a tubercular woman?
And, we can atsume thaHhe tuber

Out of the main quettion there
grow a number of secondary ques
tion. Among thee are:
Will the child of a tubercular
mother inherit tuberculoi?
Will it acquire the disease in in
fancy from its mother?
II rt does acquire tuberculosis in
infancy, is it an advantage or a dis
advantage? Should a tubercular mother breast
feed her haby?
If a tubercular woman becomes
trrg,'unt, should the yrcgnuncy be
When it come to answering these
question, ph.ticians are pretty near
ly agreed. About as nearly agreed as
physician are ever, and far more so
than is the case with judges on the
The answer to the main question
is: Pregnancy is very harmful to a
Bacon says many tubercular
women do well in thie first three
months of pregnancy; fewer in the
second three months, and very few
in the last three months.
A certain percentage of those who
come safely through, pregnancy per

Stewart, agreeing with Bacon, says
that of 200 child-bearing women with
tuberculosis, in the Manitoba sani
tarium, 25 per cent broke down dur
ing the nine months of pregnancy, or
about 3 per cent a month; 24 per cent
during the first month after the baby
was born, during the following 12
months, 36 per cent, or 3 per cent a
A few tuberculosis women do well
when they first become pregnant, be
cause they improve in nutrition to
care for the coming baby, and that
helps to hold the disease in check,
but even that stage in this small
group is short.
The answers to the secondary
questions are as follows:
First, the chance that the baby will
inherit tuberculosis is practically non
existent. Second, the chance that it will ac
quire the disease in infancy ' from
close association is great.
Third, it is a disadvantage.
Many babies die from consumption
during babyhood. A considerable'
part of the babies supposed to be
marasmatic, impossible to feed, tye
ricrnourished. and so forth, are""rfeal
Cough, the outstanding symptom
in consumption in adults, is about as
misleading as cough is a sign of
consumption in crazy people and in
Babies, crazy people and cows may
die from consumption without hav
ing enough cough to arouse sus
picion. In addition, a large part of the
consumption in adults has lain dor
mant since babyhood.
It may be that some day we may
learn that tuberculosis in childhood
increases resistance to consumption,
but this theory is too nebulous now
for anyone to fou.nd a policy for baby
care on it.
Fourth, a tubercular mother should
rtpt breast feed her baby. It is not
best for her nor for her baby.
The fifth question is more diffi
cult to answer. If a tubercular wom
an becomes pregnant, or if a preg
nant woman is found to have tuber
culosis, should the pregnancy be
terminated? Some hold that argu
ments cited to prove the answers to
the first four questions prove that it
But, unfortunately, termination of
the pregnancy does not stop the
Dr. D. A. Stewart has given an
swer to this question, that is about
the best I have seen.
It is as follows:
The rule is that termination of the
pregnancv in the last five months is
not justified. The rule is against
termination during the first four
months, but in that case the rule is
not so definite.
There are many exceptions to the
rule. Every case should be studied
individually to determine whether, in
that case, the rule should be fol
lowed. Eat 'Em. Don't Drink 'Em.
