Becoming Not a Mother Book
“There is a kind of sadness in not wanting the things that give so many other people their life’s meaning. ” ― Sheila Heti, Motherhood
What follows the choice not to become a mother? When you decide not to become a mother there is no word for what you are becoming. But not becoming a parent does not simply mean a continuation of the status quo. Becoming Not A Mother is an exploration of self care rituals and healing through feelings of loss, alienation, and unworthiness in the wake of my decision to not have children.
