Will being a mother change who I am?

Following on from my post yesterday, I decided to look again at the issue of how becoming a mother might change our sense of who we are, our identity.

As I mentioned, for women who are debating whether or not to have children, this issue is often very much at the forefront of their mind.  Particularly if they have witnessed friends after having their first child.

I found this study which looked at the question of motherhood and identity.

I think one of the quotes from a woman who was interviewed a year after the birth of her child that she 'is the same woman in a different world' very salient.
