Annotation

An odd pamphlet that argues “Prenatal Education” can produce children with specific characteristics, good or bad. The pamphlet outlines what the mother should do regarding diet, exercise, and “purposeful activities,” during pregnancy to bring about the only vaguely described eutopia. The author says that this is based on the writings of Dr. O. Z. Hanish (1844/56?-1936), whose writings on Prenatal Education were brought together in two collections published in Amsterdam in 1976. The book ends by mentioning a forthcoming novel, It All Starts in the Womb by Frank D. Steiner, which will illustrate Prenatal Education but does not appear to have even been published.

Author Note

The female author, a chiropractor, had been barred from prescribing her “grape cure” for cancer by the California Board of Public Health, a cure that appears to have been first popularized by the South African author Johanna Brandt (1876-1964) in her The Grape Cure (1927), which is still in print.
