What is mother love?
- The thrill of that first smile
- The reserves of strength you never knew you had
- The touch of a baby’s hand as it curls around your finger
- The pride at that first school concert
In this tribute compiled by Selwa Anthony and Selena Hanet-Hutchins, mothers of all ages – from the not-so-famous to celebrities – describe their thoughts, feelings and experiences of motherhood and of a love that is at once mysterious and practical, exhausting and revitalising, terrifying and exhilarating.
