A list of rules and instructions handed out by a hospital in 1968 to mums who have just given birth have gone viral on social media.
The strict set of instructions was originally shared to Facebook by a mum, before being quickly picked up and posted by multiple pages and groups.
A couple of the most shocking instructions include the restricted times a mother is allowed to see her baby, “Please do not ask to see baby at any other time”.
And no one, including the father is allowed in the room during nursing times, which happen at strict intervals throughout the day for one hour at a time.
Thank goodness times have changed!
As you can imagine social media did not react well to the rules.
“They lost me at ‘please do not ask to see baby at any other time’ like wtf you talking to? That’s mine,” one mum commented.
“I draw the line at ‘do not eat chocolate candy’. After dealing with gestational diabetes during my ENTIRE pregnancy, they would have had to pry my M&Ms out of my cold, dead hands.
“Is this why baby boomers are so angry,” another mum shared.
“I still think it’s a miracle anyone from that time successfully breastfed. These instructions are insane,” read another comment.
