Parents and parenting Relationships features. But in that moment, I finally accepted that I would never experience a rush of maternal love for a newborn. Perhaps — despite decades of feminism — it's because there's an assumption that the only truly worthwhile job a woman can do is to raise children. The emotion was like bereavement, something I had to go through to be able to move forward with my life. But motherhood had been my one abiding ambition. This was hurtful, but not surprising, as I've missed out on invitations before. The noise of the traffic seemed to quieten, as if the sound had been turned down, as the realisation sunk in. It's not, I believe, that my friends don't want me around any more, simply that their lives as parents, wage-earners and partners leaves them with no time for anything other than family-focused socialising, often arranged at the school gates.
