The struggle to fit two people into a space formerly reserved for one

”It follows that the greater the autonomy a woman enjoyed in her life before motherhood, the more acutely she will experience its loss once the great divide has been crossed… On the far side of the great divide, in other words, women who have managed to ’get a life’ before motherhood are especially at risk… A woman accostumed to taking autonomy for granted may find the experience of newborn motherhood strangely claustrophobic as she struggles to fit two people into a space formerly reserved for one.”
