"Regretting Motherhood: A Study" by Israeli sociologist Orna Donath has sparked a global conversation about the pitfalls of motherhood. The book was published in Japan last year and provoked both praise and criticism. An NHK program director, who is eight months pregnant herself, interviewed mothers about their regrets as she sought to find out why the topic seemed to have struck such a chord in Japanese society. Along with a studio guest, we think about how women can become mothers while still being true to themselves.
