Motherhood is scary it doesn’t come with an instruction booklet. Nobody can tell you what your life will be like after having a baby it is something you have to have faith in and prepare for. Society today adds to the fear by giving life pressures both financial, social.
The fear is there will not be enough time for social activities and the financial stresses of paying bills and feeding and clothing another person. But that is all it is fear.
Looking at women in the public eye who have recently had children Blac Chyna, Teyana Taylor, Kerry Washington, Kim Kardashian, Mariah Carey and Beyonce people would assume they got money so what’s the issue. Nature gives most women the opportunity to create and carry a child but once he/she is born the most important job starts. Nurturing.
I knew I was ready to become a mother when my desire to nuture became to strong. Its an instinct motherhood to some it comes naturally others have to learn but I could not imagine having to do it with the scrutiny of the media. Readers enjoy negativity so much now that people in the public eye don’t announce pregnancies, or wait until the baby is born. The fear of something not going to plan in a pregnancy is way greater than the negativity but it is weighing. Just know it is not the end of the world to have a baby. If it’s meant to be the universe will figure it out.
