dc.description.abstractLarisa says that in Kalmyk culture there is special respect towards pregnant women. For example, it is forbidden to upset or say bad words to them. In the past, women tried to keep an eye on the health of their daughters-in-law by examining their urine. Traditionally, newly born children were wrapped in the robes of their grandparents (symbolizing longevity). Their cradles were also filled with dung ashes that served as nappies. This prevented babies from having a skin rash.
