Abstract: Childbirth, a seemingly singular event in China, is nonetheless momentous. Bearing a child transforms a girl into a woman and a mother. Motherhood, in most traditional cultures, symbolizes both the major achievement and the full attainment of femininity. This is particularly true of contemporary China.
