“It takes a village to raise a child, and in most urban societies we’re sorely lacking in that sense of traditional community support for parents. Most people are lucky to have a monthly FaceTime with their family, let alone reap the benefits of intergenerational experience and shared knowledge. But at what point did someone have the bright idea of shoving a bunch of hormonal, sleep-deprived women in a room together – none of whom know what day it is, let alone offer any genius insights into how to look after a newborn – and think that was an adequate replacement?”
From giving birth to looking after a newborn, there’s plenty to fear about becoming a parent. But one of the scariest parts has to be joining a Mothers’ Group. But despite the trepidation, is it really that bad? (Yes, but no. But mainly yes)
