Abstract

Adopting a life-course perspective, this study reveals four narratives of transition to motherhood and according changes of (non-)
consumption patterns that liberate, constrain, support, legitimize, and perfectionize women’s understandings of motherhood as ‘a
fairytale’ coming true, as a ‘dual-role narrative’, as ‘temporary motherhood’, or as a ‘turning point’ in life.
