  1. I have missed your Posts! And this is such an interesting one.. Never seen photos of pregnant ladies in the victorian Era!

    • Sorry, I have been very busy lately!
      Yes, photos like these are rare… but I managed to find a few – you can see how some of the women try to cover their baby bumps!

      • Yes indeed! Although being with child was considered right for women in that time, God intended women to carry their spouse’s child after all! 😉
