On top of life-altering adjustments such as serious sleep deprivation and breastfeeding pain that motherhood brings, these first-time mothers also have to learn to navigate the judgemental corridor that is social media.

In a social climate infiltrated by the Instagram-happy, Pinterest-perfect culture, raising a family now comes with a different set of struggles. And the struggle is especially real for new mothers. Leading up to Mother's Day, we have gathered a group of women – all of them experiencing motherhood for the first time – to share their stories in the Malaysia Tatler's May 2018 issue.

Graciously, they open up about the ups and downs as they transition into modern-day maternity. But even at their most vulnerable, their joy and adoration for their children are not lost on us.
