Having less children is because lifestyles have changed.
My folks didn't get government help, when my father was drafted my grandparents stepped in. Back then the woman(wife) was a homemaker and the husband bacon-bring-homer. It had been that way for a long time.
But after the big one, WWII, the consumer economy was born. They offered and convinced you that more was the answer to your doldrums. Soon more became standard/expected, but more cost money so two (or more)incomes were necessary. When that became standard the traditional mother/homemaker roll was dead.
Having a bunch of kids now means a lot of sacrifice, and often being viewed as a semi-pariah by peers.
