Back in 1969 there was a TV program called Marcus Welby, MD.
I use to watch it each week with my Mom.
It was a series that lasted until 1976. Recently I found a DVD of the first year of this show.
I thought it would just be fun to see the difference between medicine then, and medicine now.
(The show was produced in cooperation of the American Academy of Family Practice.)
Ohmygoodness times have changed.
No one has time to watch this whole video,
so just go to 26:27 and you will see how TV portrayed birth back in 1969...
Watch, too, right after she gives birth
and what they do to the mother when they think the baby may have problems.
They would never get away with this now!
And if there is anyone reading this who had a baby back in the late 1960s....
was it really like this?
Just go to 26:27, and and end at 29:25. Let me know what you think.
