Motherhood and pregnancy is fraught with expectations of many kinds. How a body should handle the changes carrying another life brings. Pressure of the value of womanhood through the lens of fertility. Standards in personality as to how a mother should act and behave. External and internal pressures from family, society, and personal belief systems. This “normal” biological phase in many women’s lives can rock a soul to its very core and cause her to question who she is as a person, as she navigates questions and trials varying from the obscenely mundane to the highly philosophical in the journey of procreation.
