A girl dreams of being a mother right from her childhood. It is very difficult when she realizes that it is taking time to do so or perhaps impossible. A woman status in society is still measured by her ability to have children.
The journey of a girl from childhood to menopause is said not to be complete till she becomes a mother. Most of us are blessed and we become mothers when we want to and very often even without wanting to, however there are a group of women who are struggling very hard to be there, to know that she is pregnant, to enjoy her pregnancy and to final hear the sweet words of her baby calling her “Mamma”.
