INTERRUPTED MOTHERHOOD

“When a child is conceived, parenthood starts. Often, the conception takes place because of a strong bond between two people. If this occurs the state of motherhood remains unchanged indefinitely. On the other hand, circumstances such as parental discord may impact the quality of care for a child. The previous close attachment may bring about feelings of abandonment, separation, and a loss of self. What to do with the lasting psychological affect becomes the challenge.”
