CSO: `I’m now part of the motherhood clan. With all these people I knew before, suddenly the conversation is all about being a mother. People now talk to me on the bus. And, I’ve become this person who talks to pregnant women. We’ve got new friends who have babies. Obviously, so many women are mothers, but we mostly talk about it mother to mother. Going through birth, I understand how extremely strong women are. But they don’t really talk about that.’

ON MOTHERHOOD

CSO: `I’m afraid all the time, worrying that things might be wrong or that something will happen to me or, most of all, that something will happen to her, or that something will happen to my partner. I did not think so much about such things before.’

ON PREGNANCY

CSO: `I feel like the same person and I thought that I wouldn’t. Or, I thought that I would be a different person […] but I am not. I just have this other person with me. […] It feels very natural. I felt that the pregnancy was so weird. It was so alien and felt unreal. And then, the moment she was out, it was just very natural. It just makes sense that she’s around now.’
