I believe every woman that is pregnant suffers an irrational fear that they won’t love or even like their baby, and worries about them being born healthy- I know I certainly did. I needn’t have worried, the moment I laid eyes on my precious babies I was lost forever. I remember the interminable wait while they were whisked away to be weighed and checked and then how relieved I was when they were finally placed in my arms.
The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed but the mother never. And once you become a mother you are a mother until the day you die.
