Three years in the making, this film is a reflective look at a woman’s experience of becoming a mother. It was filmed during her pregnancy, and the birth and early babyhood of her second child. She critically examines the attitude towards her changing role, and the attitudes of others towards her at this time, and at the time of the birth of her previous child. Her candid statements are enlightening because she does not say what she is expected to say, but what she honestly feels.

The imagery and film quality may not be to modern standards but is useful for historical use.
