That is a notable difference between Doona and other series, even Freedom which has a similar new-colony setup, albeit with forced colonists.

I wonder how much it might relate to when the first book was written, as it was one of Anne's first. *goes to look up biography data*

Decision at Doona was Anne's third novel, published a year before her divorce (and probably written 6-12 months prior). It's reasonable that at that time she was much more...in touch with the joys of raising a family as a job in of itself.
