Mother Who?

Personal Stories and Insights on Juggling Family, Work and Life

Motherhood is an amazing journey. It can be rewarding, exhilarating, frustrating and stressful, often all in the same day. Motherhood doesn't come with an instruction manual that guide women through the maze of emotions, challenges and choices. Quite simply, there is no "right way" to be a mum. Mother Who? draws upon the experience of some amazing mothers and leading experts. The book provides inspiration and information about the questions and choices encountered by working mothers everywhere. Mother Who? reveals the personal experiences and candid insights of a wonderfully diverse group of mums. From the entertainer to the sheep farmer, the elite athlete to the politician, the foster mother to the radio presenter, their thought-provoking and honest stories will provide encouragement to all mothers. Their compelling stories are interspersed with practical information about issues, such as support networks, child care, working with employers, emotional and social pressures, starting a business, health and relationships. Contributors include Governor of Queensland Quentin Bryce, Senator Natasha Stott Despoja, singer Kate Ceberano and athlete Nova Peris, as well as other mothers in diverse occupations - from foster mother to CEO of a large corporation. A portion of proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to Barnardos, Australia's leading children's welfare organisation.
