In this presentation, the multifaceted, often unconscious or unspoken aspects of mother*hood and becoming parents are explored and contextualized within the broader societal framework.

The concept of "maternal* identity" is elucidated, highlighting how becoming a mother* entails similar challenges and developmental processes as puberty. Additionally, common myths surrounding mother*hood are debunked, and there is critical reflection on the expectations imposed on parents in our society.
