Watch: First-Time Mothers Talk About Motherhood In The Age Of 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.
For an insight into their mother-child bond, check out an excerpt of the photoshoot and interview below:
