Aunt Lydia: I'm pleased that everything is going so well with the baby. Serena Joy: As our doctor would happily tell you. Aunt Lydia: Have I let myself become a bother? There's so much more to a successful preganancy than can be measured in a doctor's office. The ventilation in a handmaid's room. The firmness of the bed. The mood in the household. Her attitude seems much improved. Serena Joy: It's everything a wife could ask for. She's quite unlike herself. Aunt Lydia: Mrs. Waterford, no small effort has been made to bring Offred to heel. Your baby needs to know it's a godly, harmonious environment. Serena Joy: Of course. Praise be his miracle.
