Help with sources for research on the politics of early twentieth-century prenatal exercise advice

Hello,

I am a current PhD student studying in Kinesiology at the University of Maryland.  I'm working with one of my advisers on an essay manuscript concerning the historical politics of American health pracitioners' prenatal exercise advice during the beginning decades of the twentieth century.  We're particularly studying how this printed advice was often linked to discourses of fatigue and concerns of "over-civilization" for middle and upper-class women, and reforms due to infant mortality and prescribing rest for working-class women.
