How far would you go to have a baby? And how do you bring up a child with multiple cultural backgrounds? A new short film on 1000londoners.com profiles a woman who has had to deal with both of these issues.
Rose is a Spanish mother who grew up within Stockwell and Brixton’s Hispanic community. Her husband, Artif, is from Egypt and speaks Arabic as his first language. After unsuccessfully trying for a child for many years, Artif took Rose to Egypt for fertility treatment, where it’s a third of the price of comparable treatments in London.

I’m a novelist & journalist…I’m also a mum. And I have to say that the way mothers are portrayed in fiction DRIVES ME NUTS.
Think about the books you’ve read which focus on being a mother…it’s all about the hard work, the difficulties, the mess and the way in which your life is taken away from you.
What about the good stuff??? Where is the joy of being a mum reflected in modern fiction?
