‪#‎100YearOld‬ 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.

The full leaflets are available on our Centenary of Anzac website : http://nswanzaccentenary.records.nsw.gov.au/index.php/on-the-homefront/before-the-baby-is-born-advice-to-expectant-mothers/

I become so sad when I read records like these. We are lucky, but how many descendents today realize that we are riding on the backs of their intrepid all inclusive luck, pluck, struggles and suffering. I show and teach my grnd children about these times every chance I get. And they are not shying away as once they did. Never give up eh?

Story

The NSW Government's archives & records management authority.
Introduction
We are the NSW Government's archives and records management authority - we manage the NSW State archives collection and set the rules and provide guidance on the management of official records.

The State's archives are a unique and irreplaceable part of our Australian cultural heritage. They document the business of government in New South Wales - and its interaction with people and groups in our society - from the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788 until today. 

Archives are the 'raw material of history' and form part of our collective memory. The records appear in all formats - files, photographs, maps, posters, plans, films, sound recordings and electronic records.

People use the State's archives for many reasons. Public, academic, family and local historians, social and scientific researchers, people establishing their rights and entitlements, authors, the media, students - all are among the regular users of the State's archives. Government agencies, too, make extensive use of the archives.
