Feeling Into Motherhood

Posted on December 22, 2016

by Madeleine Kerrick

Imagine: you’re an expectant mother daydreaming about the moment when you will first meet your baby. Most likely, you envision overwhelming positive emotion, a sort of love at first sight. But what if instead, baby arrives and you feel…mildly fond? resentful? exhausted and relieved that the birth is over? Or maybe, you feel nothing at all.

New research suggests that mothers experience a range of feelings upon meeting their newborns. A team of researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) recently looked at how first-time American mothers described developing feelings for, and a connection to, their babies.[i] We were interested in how these women told their stories and whether there was evidence of a cultural expectation, or “master narrative,” as to how mothers should feel about their babies.
