"Lidija Praizovic have read ”Mom either way”"
"The latest addition in the abundant bokflora which consists of anthologies of to be or not to be a mother is a Mother, anyway – stories about motherhood in the editorial office of Margaretha Fahlgren and Anna Williams. It is a glorious rich anthology that accommodates a diversity of experiences and stories about mödrandets pluraliteter and ambivalence."
"the Book is part of the research project ”the Mother either way. Literary, healthcare and media stories” and texts keeps a consistently high level. As the editors write in the preface: ”We soon discovered that motherhood for a woman is almost impossible to get away. She is the mother either way: whether she has children or not is her existential identity is still strongly tied to her reproductive ability.”"
"Every single one of the texts more or less captivates me and gives me new insights, but recensionsformen allows unfortunately, I just lift a few of these."
"what does it look like to be a mother in Sweden today? "
"There are a variety of modersvariationer: adoptivmamman, the young, the poor and single mother, the aunt, the godmother, styvmamman, the mother with cleft lip and cleft palate who are wondering if it will go as an inheritance to her children, the mother of a child with Down syndrome, to be the mother of his own sick and dying mother, and the woman who refuses motherhood by undergoing repeated abortions."
"the Book's most queer contributions – A pregnant man – is based on the ethnographer Emma Eleonorasdotters interviews with Erik, a transman that has carried, given birth to and nursing three children and obviously sees himself as a father. "
"the Questions becomes: Is it possible to evade motherhood, when a man carries and gives birth to a child? Have to manhood and motherhood set against each other?"
"the Section house of his birth sets the vital and crisis-ridden maternity care in the centre. Literary scholar Sigrid Schottenius Cullhed and planeringssekreteraren Maria Svenning tells the story of a fantastic initiative in Yalla Sofielunds premises in Malmö, sweden."
"In a project, the project trained women to serve as doulor in their native language. The risk of complications during childbirth is fifty percent higher among non-european women from Africa, Asia and Latin america, which depends on the linguistic and cultural barriers between health professionals and migrant women. In order to improve the situation started in education where women with an immigrant background and a good knowledge of Swedish must learn to support women with the same background before, during and after childbirth. In Gothenburg, sweden, where the training, ”Douala and cultural mediator” been going on since 2008, the project had a number of positive consequences."
"the Author Aase Berg explains in a sassy and original essay on the hubris she received after having given birth to their children: ”I and my balla's daughters: a trehövdat överlevnadsdjur”. In order to not end up in the kvinnofällan she gives herself the freedom to be as a dad: ”I took me the male-coded right into cool indifference. I give me the motherly klänget (...) the Children were, in short, not my main interest in life.”"
"When the trio late fall, they fall significantly: in the space of a few months trying to the younger daughter to take her life and the older is raped. But Berg's conclusion signals the courage and a willingness for both themselves and their daughters to remain okuvade: ”I am not a lousy mom, I live in a lousy world. The only women who manage themselves, albeit at a high price is that they fold flat, that sneaks along the walls, and adjust themselves wholeheartedly after distressing the girl - and the female roles.”"
"A different grip on this with the borders between the parent and the child is taken by the researcher in gender studies Helena Wahlström Henriksson and Anna Soltorp. It is about Anna, who is ensamförälder to Alexander with the disability is autism and mild mental retardation. Anna is worried about what happens the day she passes away: ”I can also think like this to jaa, hope that Alexander does not survive me ... Perhaps it is best that they shoot him for then he in all cases not moderslös, and what would he do without me? ... But it is not the lack of love for my children, but about my biggest fear ... it is a huge responsibility.”"
"the Author Anneli Jordahl has written the most sore, the text, developed as a drama between an old mother and a middle-aged daughter with a focus on class and motherhood. Up to 35 years wanted her daughter not to have children, but just before 40, she asked herself if she had not missed anything. Then followed three miscarriages."
"the Text breathes sorrow, and with bitterness, that it was not a child, but just as much of a tight pride and satisfaction over the artistic skaparliv who never made compromises on. The daughter has in any case not repeated inheritance, her mother's words: ”There was nothing of me for I made you.” Hope this drama develops and is put up in the theatre!"
"the Research shows that infertility is a growing problem in the western world, because western women are waiting longer to have children."
"A woman who has become the mother is not expected to feel depressed and despondent, she should be happy!"
"But you can, of course, also have children, and become completely depressed. "
"the Theme of post-natal depression developed in the literary scholar Cecilia Pettersson's contribution in which she analyzes the autobiographical books that challenge our culture's greatest taboos: mental illness in general and postpartum depression in particular. A woman who has become the mother is not expected to feel depressed and despondent, she should be happy! "
"But these books deal not to experience an emotional connection to their child, to regret that they bought children, and to exceed the limit may not be exceeded: violence against children."
"A very readable anthology that puts a lot of thoughts and feelings and fits nicely to give as gifts to the mothers and the aliens."
