Parenthood often confronts us with the unresolved issues in our society

Whether it’s rising levels of anxiety and depression, rampant dissatisfaction with body, prejudice, or social exclusion - our children bring home the big issues of our time, making them personal and urgent.

A Certain Mother takes a close look at four topics, exploring the challenges and complexities that these present when raising our children:

  • Body image

  • Mental Health

  • Disability

  • Identity

Through the stories of mothers who have found these issues at the heart of their parenthood, we will seek to answer the questions and dilemmas that many parents face.
