A recent initial study on 23 mothers by Orna Donath, a sociologist at Ben-Gurion University, Israel, recently sparked a fierce debate after it highlighted that unknown numbers of mothers regret having childrem, and tried to distinguish between ambivalence and firm regret.
For women struggling to cope with feelings of regret, the internet is a refuge where they can speak anonymously about issues from lifestyle changes to money.

I was a flight stewardess, free as a bird before having kids. Another wrote of how she is struggling with her three-year-old daughter who does not sleep. My husband helps so much, but even he is close to collapsing. We have no family and friends. No support network. What do I do?
On Mumsnet one despairing woman wrote: "I loved my old life. My husband really wanted a child and I put it off for so long, just knowing that it's not my calling. I gave in after so many rows thinking I would adjust. I still do not feel like a mother. I miss my old life so much I just feel like walking out and leaving my husband and son.
Someone who posted similar thoughts signed off with the plea: "Please don't hate me, is what I'm really trying to say. I actually consider myself quite a loving person. Other mothers have written how their regret comes down to the father of their child.

Speaking on forums including Mumsnet and Netmums, and using services such as Relate, can also help. Watch out for any signs of post-natal depression though, which is a different issue and needs to be treated. You can find our Community Guidelines in full here.
