The wonderful Carole Power with her daughter Amelia Clare (4.5). Carole and her husband tried for nearly 3 years before they were able to conceive Amelia. While that process was challenging, her pregnancy was without complication. Amelia was born very quickly and made a little "meep" as her first sound, she never cried. Breastfeeding was established without issue and Carole nursed Amelia until 14 or 15 months when she self-weaned. Carole was 41 when Amelia was born and says that it took some time to settle in. The physicality of motherhood, having someone with you, someone always on you, was amazing but still, an adjustment. Carole says that motherhood has completely transformed her, she says that Amelia has been her greatest gift and greatest teacher and has confronted her with the reality that every moment is the only moment.
