Books about motherhood

It's wondrous, it's all-encompassing, it's maddening, it's devastating, energising, brutal, beautiful, messy, surprising... sometimes all before 7am. Luckily, there are some incredible writers out there who have captured the essence of being a mother – and all its contradictions – so the rest of us can get a peek into what it entails, or feel less alone when we're experiencing certain emotions. Here are some of the best books on motherhood we think all women should read.
