rich emollient used in the management of eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions.

Here’s another film about getting your period!

Meet brave Nurse Jansen, who speaks confidently about womanly changes.

Watch melancholy Molly, a a girl named Barbara!!, and the other girls in the sad-looking class as they voice their questions.

Hear the nurse’s stern warnings about skating, volleyball, basketball, or square dancing during menstruation.

See the real things: a sanitary belt, pads, and tampons. Move over Walt Disney (maker of the last film), here comes a stronger dose of reality.

This film was made around 1953. I was surprised the nurse talks about tampons. I didn’t realize they were used then, especially by girls.

    The woman I’m working with sent me the first just for fun because she knew I’d like it. I think the other one popped up near it on U-tube.

    Glad you like them! The girls and nurse are so somber in the last one. They’d be in their 70’s plus now. I wonder how their menopause was!?
