Additional:


Now that you have survived your pregnancy and childbirth, would you like to add a bit more realism to your RP experience?


Children in this period, if they survived past early childhood, sometimes led lives full of turmoil and anguish.  Most children did not have the privilege of living the lighthearted and blissful lifestyle that many children experience in current times.  Because the time period was full of poor diet and sickness, the lifespan was cut short for many before they even reached adolescence.


It is estimated that up to a quarter of infants born, died before they even lived for a full year.  Generally, most infant deaths occurred as a result of accidents or disease.  Of course, children who came from poorer families experienced a higher rate of infant mortality because it was harder for poorer families to obtain medical help or health care.  Healthy infants were usually seen as a special gift from the Gods (Old or New).
