Transitions in life of mothers of young children

Bleeser, Jacinta (2004) Transitions in life of mothers of young children. Other Degree thesis, Victoria University of Technology.

Abstract

Past research on the transition to motherhood has neglected to relate this experience to other transitions in the life course. This qualitative study explored the transition to motherhood in relation to overall experiences and understandings of turning points in life, among mothers of young children.
