    AMW member S pointed out something very important in a comment at the bottom of my last article, What If Everything Negative You’ve Been Told About Motherhood Is Wrong?, which has inspired me to expand on the issue she raised. She wrote: “Interesting. Could (unconscious?) devaluation go a long way to explain why many affairs […]

  • What if everything negative you’ve been told about mothering was wrong?
    Posted in: Articles

    I want to look at the common complaint of ‘feeling invisible’ that many, if not most, mothers will describe at some time or another, and offer a new way of looking at why this might be, and at reframing that feeling.

    Hello, let me introduce you to All Mothers Work. The look of the site will be changing over the next few weeks, as I get to grips with this new website malarkey, so bear with me. Maternal Feminism, eh? What’s all that about, you may well be asking. The About and Manifesto pages will give […]
