Becoming a mother is a process, not an event. It is assumed that once a woman gives birth she is a mother. The truth is that most women have no idea what to do when they come face-to-face with their newborn for the very first time and discover that becoming a mother is not the fairy tale experience they expected. "First-time Mother" interviews Christine Louise Hohlbaum, author of "Diary of a Mother" and "SAHM I Am: Tales of a Stay-at-Home Mom in Europe" about the transition to motherhood.
