Synopsis

Stories of women who mother are central to this book. The women come to mothering through birth and adoption, as birth mothers, placing mothers, adopting mothers and teen mothers. Woven between the women's narratives, the author offers reflective commentary intended to show the mothering experience in its complexity-bodily, culturally, and as the rootbed of relationship. Using phenomenological research, Bergum brings the mothering experience to light-as it is lived-exploring themes of love and pain, responsibility, belonging, choice, transformation, and quickening of the moral impulse to attend to the child. Bergum's intent is to encourage thoughtful reflection about what is learned through mothering-by women and by society-in order to create and sustain a society that is good for children and the women who mother them.

Vangie Bergum, PhD, is Professor in The Bioethics Centre and the Faculty of Nursing, University of Alberta. She is principal investigator of the Ethics of Nurturance Research Project which produced the video and, they want a child (University of Alberta, 1996). She is the author of numerous works, including Woman to Mother: A Transformation (Bergin & Garvey, 1989).
