    Mad Men. Well, I have to say something about this twilight sleep thingy. I gave birth in both 1964 and 1969; both times my husband (your father, Bill) was in the labor room with me for the entire time.

    I was given no drug to make me sleep (or crazy, thankfully, although I guess I’d not remember that part anyway). I was encouraged by the hospital staff to get up and walk around the room to help the pain.

    I don’t think any of my friends mentioned anything about such a drug, either. In fact, until reading this entry, I never heard about such a drug. Not saying it didn’t happen — women were certainly considered lesser creatures (hysterics) in those days.

    Thanks for your comment, mom. Glad to know I was not an excuse for evil medical procedures being performed on you (well, the c-section not withstanding).
