It sounds like she's just going through the "battle of the self" that many mothers go through. Some of us go through it with the 1st, some of us go through it with the 5th. It requires a lot of sacrifice of your focus on your "self" to care for other people. Some people are very self centered (I know I tend to be) and this is a huge struggle. Some people are natural care takers and think more about others, and this transition comes with ease. It's a tough thing. But it definitely sounds like a battle in her spirit.
