"Non-fiction motherhood. Accounts of home overthrow ”Joanna Woźniczko-Czeczott


Motherhood covered with icing and mixed with an unbelievable amount of sugar has already eaten. Books on the publishing market are eager to showcase what maternity really is. What is it like? Well ... The problem is that you can only find out ... after the fact. Every mother finds the truth from the cradle, changing table, ironing board, diaper filled to the brim, in the middle of the night, during wake-up calls every hour and when the nail polish has not yet dried, and you need to rush to the baby.

Motherhood is a drudgery

Joanna Woźniczko-Czeczott does not fall from one extreme to the other. It describes reality in a funny, but also very real way. The way everybody knows us, but just like everybody is rarely spoken about. Mainly because of the pressure to be smiling, always happy, full of energy mother or for fear of falling into the bag called "postpartum depression".

How is it It is known, according to the author: frustrating, stressful, boring, tiring. Mother spends time reading the same story several times, walking for several hours in the park, patiently translating, cooking, explaining nature, rubbing her nose and ass. The plan of the day also includes duties that are not appreciated (the author refers to numerous studies that are painfully sincere and assess the place of the inactive mother unequivocally) and after which you can feel exhausted, frustrated, which further deepens the belief that theoretically nothing it didn't make value, "because you are sitting with your child at home" ...

You read and read and you know nothing

What is the fiction of motherhood? Not only that the media very often present a false vision of motherhood, but also because even reading a few books does not prepare properly for this role. Too many mothers have a problem with the effect of "venting" all knowledge right after delivery. They don't even prepare childbirth schools for the role of mothers, which explain how to give birth, not how to raise.

Many women are shocked, confused, and rub their eyes in disbelief. He is afraid to admit that they are bad in many ways. They subscribe to the vision of pink-blue motherhood in order not to receive the "bad mother" patch.

After this book, it is difficult to expect mothers to play happily over the pram. This is no idyll or media pink message. However, these are memories that are read incredibly well, despite the rather radical images presented. It is so good that in many places you can identify with the heroine, who writes not only about her struggles with motherhood, but also with work after childbirth, as well as mentions about how motherhood affects relationships with a partner. The author without complexes shares her failures, difficulties and the fact that after giving birth it is impossible to live the same way as before giving birth to a child. It is a pity that reading does not improve the mood ... but it's probably not her role.

Thank you to the Czarne Publishing House for providing us with a copy of the review book.
