An abstract of the article "Antenatal Identification of Women Liable to Have Problems in Managing Their Infants," by Eva A. Frommer and Gillian O'Shea is presented. A group of British-born married primigravidae who had been separated from parents before the age of 11 were matched for age and social class by a group of controls who denied such separations. In many respects, statistically significant differences were found between the two groups.
