Making modern mothers, Paperback / softback Book


What does motherhood mean today? Drawing on interviews with new mothers and intergenerational chains of women in the same family, this exciting and timely book documents the transition to motherhood over generations and time.

Exploring, amongst other things, the trend to later motherhood and the experience of teenage pregnancy, a compelling picture emerges.

Becoming a mother is not only a profound moment of identity change but also a site of socio-economic difference that shapes women's lives.
