Can one word describe what its like to become a mother?

Becoming a mother is so much more than having a baby. For more than nine months, you try to picture what it will be like, you set goals and create expectations for the type of mother you’ll be, and you begin to realize that life will never be the same. It can be inspiring and overwhelming at the same time. Some, in bittersweet reflection, mourn the end of their former life as they prepare for motherhood. These feelings have always been complex for moms to convey to the uninitiated. Friendly conversations during baby showers often include phrases like “You’re life will never be the same!” or “Get ready, parenthood is hard.”
