Bryn* says that she regrets how she handled her relationship with her mother after giving birth. It sounds like she wishes she’d used it as more of an opportunity to work on their relationship.
“My mom and I have always had a strained relationship. So I think she thought me having
a baby would bring us closer together. But I just used it as an excuse to push her more away.
When my younger sister had her baby, it made me realize how much I did want my mom involved in the first few months. I have a lot of regret about how I handled things.”
