Mother in the Mother: Looking back, looking forward – women’s reflections on maternal lineage

Pippa Grace

ISBN: 9781910559475

When a woman becomes a mother, it is often a time she reflects back upon the way she herself was mothered. Our maternal inheritance from our mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and beyond can have a great influence upon the ways in which we choose to bring up our own children.

Whilst much has been written about the complexity of the mother/daughter relationship, Mother in the Mother explores new territory by looking at the three-way relationship between grandmother, mother and child. Featuring the voices of over 50 mothers from a diverse range of ages, cultural backgrounds and experiences exploring themes of: love, stress, loss, healing, belonging, infertility, mental and physical health issues, twin pregnancy, adoption, pre-maturity, sexuality, single motherhood, young motherhood, abortion, maternal ambiguity and long-distance relationships with families of birth.

This is a personal and her-storic exploration of maternal lineage by project creator, Pippa Grace. Guidance on creating your own healing, creative projects based on the activities used in Mother in the Mother workshops. Diverse, rich, celebratory, challenging, sometimes painful and ultimately uplifting… together the stories in Mother in the Mother illuminate how the strength of maternal love can have the power to heal and overcome adversity.
