Undefining Motherhood was created by me, Katy Huie Harrison, PhD. (You can call me Katy.)
I earned a PhD in English Literature, where I wrote my doctoral dissertation on Victorian motherhood, and I’m endlessly fascinated by the societal (and often unfair) expectations of a “good” mother.

At Undefining Motherhood, you’re part of an open-minded community that celebrates the ups, downs, heartbreaks, and joys of being a human being and mother. I’m so glad you’re here.

    January 12, 2022

    As a young, naive girl, I assumed that the belly disappears and returns to normal once you have a baby.
