Interesting article titled “Women who aren’t cut out for motherhood” by Lucy Beresford for The Times (UK edition).
It’s a rarely discussed topic, and the following paragraph particularly caught my eye …
“We know that motherhood changes lives. We know all about the lack of sleep, the reduced social life, the loss of libido. What is underacknowledged is how vulnerable psychologically the new mother is to the loss of her old self. With all the freedoms that can come from a fabulous career, or financial independence, the new mum may be underprepared for the psychological impact of being totally responsible for someone else.”
