That is interesting! I feel a bit sad she did not have children, but I’m biased. :)

She raised at least one child. I know this from another transcript session before that. One or two more babies died either as miscarriages or by early infant death. The reason: lack of feeding hygiene from the bottles in the late 17th century. Infant mortality was high then because of that. The right bottles to prevent it were only invented in the 19th century.

This session (lasting only 'seconds' as usual) was about her childhood and any sisters/brothers, which I was shown did not exist. Also it was confirmed she was married but I already concluded that from her pregnancies and since it was of course the 'normal' status for a young woman of that era in that country/culture, I suppose.

Sometimes I wonder if it is the reason I have no children in this life. Maybe I should ask the question, but past trauma or any kind of thereapy is not necessarily my prime motivation, it is mere curiosity. So I want to rather know the 'good stuff' and some basic details.

Oh that is interesting, but is also very sad. That trauma does make sense. And I did not know they did bottles. I thought breastfeeding was the norm.

It always was (and should be for health reasons). But maybe some babies at a later stage also were fed by bottles. I don't know (yet) if she was even upper class (some of her clothing might suggest that she wasn't poor at least) did not do breast-feeding too much, okay, the very rich also had wet nurses for that, but some or many used bottles, also I suppose for additional feeding, or maybe at later age.
