Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Fourth section The Lethlnidgc Herald Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, November 20, 1974 'Rape should be declassified9 Pages 37748 Fathers share of birth TORONTO (CP) Names of rape victims should no longer legally be kept secret to end the idea that being raped is shameful, Lorenne Clark, a professor at the University of Toronto, said last week She said that rape should be declassified as a major crime and treated as other assaults to eliminate sexism from law The law expresses the male notion of "women as proper- she said, and a raped woman as "damaged, a used piece of furniture Being raped is no more shameful than being jttacked on other parts of the body, the professor said in a speech to about 400 people She said that in rape tridl.s the victim seems to be more on trial than the attacker By KATHIE MacLEAN Herald Staff Writer With so many factors responsible for breaking up families these days, the birth of a child can help "cement" a relationship together Through the "family centred care" materrtity program at the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital, fathers can help their wives through the ordeal of having a baby and, at the same time, gaine "a lot more appreciation for what their wives have en- dured." The concept of the program, which came into effect in September, 1973, is to bring family involvement in child birth together with the safety of hospital facilities. Olive Faulds, director of nursing at LMH, says the aim is "to combine the good things about having a baby at home with the safe things about hav- ing a baby in the hospital to try to create the ideal situation Under the old system, fathers were kept pretty much Community calendar The Ladies Auxiliary of the Original Pensioners and Senior Citizens Organization will meet at 2 p.m. Friday at the civic centre Following the meeting bingo will be played and lunch served A good attendance is requested This is the annual meeting and election of officers will take place A special practice for the Singing Tree will be held for the Anne Campbell Singers from 5 30 to 6-30 p m.

"We prefer husbands to go along with their wives to the pre natal classes sponsored by the Victorian Order of Nurses but it is not man- she says. Isobel MacKintosh, super- visor of obstetrics, says: "It's a miracle every time a baby is born and, for years, husbands have been excluded." She says some husbands don't like to go into the delivery room but the majori- ty of younger couples take ad- vantage of this opportunity "If you were brought up in a traditional way sometimes it's hard to change "But peo- ple are becoming more knowledgable and more will- ing to accept it." She added the staff has had to change over the past year and now "the program is something they can really get into." Mrs. Faulds says if the father chooses not to go into the case room, he is let in im- mediately after. If there are any complications during the birth, the father is asked to leave the room "If fathers are unable to go into the case room, any other significant person may take his place The hospital provides couples with tours of the The Herald Family facilities and pamphlets are usually available at clinics to create awareness of the program Fathers are given demonstrations on bathing a child and in the pre natal classes are taught how a woman should breathe when giving birth to a baby "It's hoped he will be able to en- courage his wife to breathe correctly when the time com- es As a part of the program, children are allowed to see their mothers during regular visiting hours. "We have had some trouble with this as quite a number of people take advantage of says Mrs Faulds. "Not only do the family's children come in to visit, but often the neighbor's children as well. We have heard com- plaints from other patients about the noise, but we didn't know how much to restrict visitors and decided it best to leave open." Mrs. MacKintosh says some visitors tend to forget the patient is kept pretty busy during the day learning child care and needs her rest Mrs Faulds says there is a lot of work in the teaching end of the program. "We hope to develop instruction in the areas of family planning, proper diet, growth and development." "Through family planning, the birth of a baby is more often a welcome, happy event. It's so important for couples to want children She says she has heard rumors that unwed mothers were not welcome at the VON's pre natal classes "This is definitely incorrect Unwed mothers are more than welcome If they prefer not to go to pre natal classes, the hospital staff will give them private tours of the facilities Mrs. MacKintosh claims many unwed mothers are alone and avoid the pre natal classes, but the VON certainly tries to make them welcome FURS ARE AT THE TOP OF HER LIST!
