On Motherhood and Mothering: Mourning What I Lost When I Became a Mother

What is lost when a woman becomes a mother? Using popular culture narratives, personal experience, and extensive interview material, this memoir examines the transition from woman to motherhood through Elisabeth Kubler-Ross's "Five Stages of Grief," aiming to shed light on the ambiguities of motherhood that are often overlooked.
