An excerpt of a letter BR sent to Antonia, after she expressed a lack of maternal feeling on the birth of her daughter, found in Susan Chitty's Now to my Mother, a memoir of Antonia White, page 32.
"I shouldn't worry, if I were you, over not feeling the correct emotions as per copy book. Very few women do, especially with a first child. They lie about it as a form of boasting. You will find that affection will grow; it is a result, not a cause, of the care one takes of the child."
