(M)otherhood is a hybrid memoir and feminist science/history book that looks at the pressures of reproduction and motherhood/parenting, and the ways in which society assigns meaning to women's biology and gendered roles from an early age.

Dr Pragya Agarwal is a behavioural and data scientist who moved from India to the UK to study and has remained here ever since. She writes about her own experience of pregnancy, childhood and motherhood as a brown woman, offering a much-needed and little-known minority perspective. Her own story is interspersed with fascinating historical and scientific research into women's roles and motherhood. She aims to offer an inclusive account as best she can, but notes that there isn't a lot of research into these issues for transgender and non-binary people, and makes it clear that her own account is very much just her own story, and doesn't apply to everyone.

As a woman from a similar background to Dr Agarwal but with no children, I found this book intensely fascinating. As much as I'd like to think that I'm reasonably aware of the many issues affecting women today, I definitely don't know nearly as much about pregnancy and motherhood as I'd like, and this book has certainly helped to fill the gap. I could empathise and sympathise with much of what Dr Agarwal writes of her own upbringing and perspective as a woman of colour, and I agree with pretty much everything she says about the problematic way in which different societies idealise and distort what motherhood should look like, making it difficult for most women to live up to these expectations. Above all, Dr Agarwal makes the persuasive argument that if women were truly allowed to be autonomous enough to make their own choices about whether or not to be a parent, and what parenting should look like, we would all be much happier for it.

I found (M)otherhood to be an accessible and interesting read that I think many other people would benefit from reading, whether they're women or not, and whether they're mothers or not. I particularly enjoyed Dr Agarwal's own story, which she writes incredibly beautifully, and she is so honest about her turbulent feelings about her own situation that it is difficult not to be moved by them.
