'I Didn't Want To Be A Mum': A Conversation
It's time to start a new conversation around motherhood.
For most women, motherhood is a joy - some of the time. But many also experience worry, disappointment, guilt - even anger and fear. Becoming a mother is one of the most physical and psychological changes a woman will ever experience. Yet as a society, we offer little support or space to adress the complexity of this transformation.
Following Sophie Ebrard's self-reflective work "I didn't want to be a mum", we open up on a more honest dialogue around the ambivalence of motherhood. Sophie will be joined by U.S. based author Angela Garbes, author of "Like a mother" (NPR's book of the year) and by Amsterdam based Nina Pierson who recently published her book "Mama-en". Moderated by Karin Hesselvik, founder of Pom Pom Social, this talk will adress truths around the 'other' side of mom-hood, from pregnancy to postpartum.
