"It is tragic that many women are hesitant to be mothers because they fear that their body will change."
"A huge belly, looks like a pregnant body, woman disconnected from her body."
"boxed in; freedom aborted; the dichotomy of mind and spirit."
"anorexics don't think pregnancy is beautiful. They abhor it."
"Many women I know seem to be ambivalent towards pregnancy and the way it changes their bodies. On one hand, there is the mystery and power of nurturing new life. On the other, there is fear of loss of self: self-control and self-as-separate-from. There seems to be a taboo against acknowledging this dilemma."
