Baby Health Leaflets

“Before Baby is Born” and “Baby’s First Twelve Months”

These two leaflets, Before Baby is Born and Baby’s First Twelve Months, were published by the New South Wales Department of Health in 1914 and coincided with the start of Government run baby health clinics in Sydney.  The pamphlets were part of a State-wide push to improve the health of babies and toddlers.  The leaflets were available at the Baby Clinics, along with doctors’ practices and local courts throughout the State.  These leaflets were located in the Correspondence of the Justice Branch of the Department of Attorney General and Justice (NRS 324).
