There’s definitely no “me” in maternity, in fact it is the very opposite. Maternity is a time of bonding, and serving the needs of the most vulnerable, all at the sacrifice of oneself.
I was working from home when my wife was on maternity leave. I revere (even though, I will never be able to fully grasp the depth of) all that a woman endures in what is a tragically underappreciated time in a family’s life.
