The Meaning of "Antevasin"

When I started writing my story it was because women would say things to me like; “well, you can do that because you are strong” or “oh, you are that type of woman, but I am not”… and I was always a little shocked and perplexed because I still did not feel strong or courageous.

M.B.’s Recent Updates

“There's always this point in pregnancy when all of sudden you realize that there is this person inside of you, and somehow you are going to have to get them out. First you worry about getting pregnant, then staying pregnant, then dealing with the side effects of pregnancy, and then when you are feeling better and enjoying the fun part of getting to know the new baby's personality and habits, you realize that there is no turning back.”

“They are not kidding when they say that mothers are strong women. We need to be strong in more ways than our children will ever know.”
M.B. Antevasin

“Things have a way of working out. The answers are there if we look for them. I should have learned by now that there is no one else that can give you advice or tell you what the right choice is, you need to trust your intuition, and know that when it doesn't feel right, you need to make a change.”

“As if new motherhood isn't hard enough, you begin the hardest and most challenging weeks of your life physically and emotionally exhausted. Even if you manage to leave the hospital without physical scars or emotional wounds, you are probably exhausted and unsure of what to do. And then you are either thrown into a world where you need to get used to being out of work and home alone, or you need to figure out how to go back to work and be a mom at the same time. Or like many women, you find some new combination of the two that has no resemblance to your former life.”
