Being "In the Family Way" in the 1920s-1950s (15 Photos)

 

 

Despite the advent of mainstream photography at the start of the 1900's, women tended to avoid being photographed during pregnancy.  There were very few "baby bump progression" pictures back then, but we've been delighted to have some of our old photo archive readers share some with us!  These photos represent a rare look in to maternity photos from 1920-1940.  Enjoy!
