Before she retired, Jean MacDougall a registered nurse ran a retirement
home where the cook was pregnant. "I worried about her falling
when she bent over the stove or dishwasher," Jean said. The cook¹s
grandmother remembered when she was a young woman living among hard
working farm families, some pregnant women wore a device to support
