" How can any one woman be expected to care full time for 5 children under the age of 7?
My Mom did - so did at least 4 mothers of kids who were in school with me. I can think of 5 or 6 more who had at least 4 within seven years.
None of them Roman Catholic. None of whom killed their kids, themselves or their husbands. Most of whom are still active and happily grand-parenting and great grand-parenting.
