As New. This is a study of first-time upper middle-class mothers and their image of motherhood; it focuses on women in their thirties who had established careers before having a child and shows how they do not want to reproduce the mothering they themselves received; they do not want to emulate the traditional image of self-sacrificing mother; while recognizing that the new mother is expected to consider her own needs as well as her child's, they nonetheless lack close relationships, especially with other women, and have an image of the new mother as being able to care for herself and her child without social support.
