Please note, this was not my comment, but another Eve's.
I think she said that hospital births were not the standard thing all
over the place which they have become in recent years. It depended on
the condition and size of your home, the state of your insurance or
Friendly Soc payments, or your contacts with the medical world, maybe
through a lady who was a patron, or a friend who was a nurse or doctor.
