Rose Ainsworth, the protagonist in my novel, The Pregnant Pause, would have benefited greatly from reading Motherhood: Is It For Me? Like many women, Rose is making herself miserable trying to decide whether or not to become a mother. This ‘Step-by-Step Guide to Clarity' coauthored by Ann Davidman and Denise Carlini recognizes that not every woman knows for certain whether she wants to have children and sends the message that having mixed feelings is okay — a message that women who are strugglin ...more

This was a fascinating 12-week program designed for women trying to decide if they want to become mothers or not, and as someone who is in that position I was hoping that it might help me get some clarity.

Each week follows a similar pattern -- some sort of guided reflection, some framing information, prompts and reflections for you, and then some stories from other women who have been through the program. I found the guided reflections to be not at useful -- I've done them in similar programs a
