In this question, there are five sentences/paragraphs. The sentence/paragraph labelled A is in its correct place. The four that follow are labelled B, C, D and E are need to be arranged in logical order to form a coherent paragraph/passage. From the given options, choose the most appropriate option.

  1. Personal experience of mothering and motherhood are largely framed in relation to two discernible or “official” discourses; the “medical discourse and natural childbirth discourse”. Both of these tend to focus on the “optimistic stories” of birth and mothering and underpin stereotypes of the “godmother”.
  2. At the same time the need for medical expert guidance is also a feature for contemporary reproduction and motherhood. but construction of good mothering have not also been so conceived and in different context may exist in parallel to other equally dominant discourses.
  3. Similarly, historical work has shown how what are now taken for granted aspects of reproduction and mothering practices result from contemporary “pseudoscientific directives” and “managed constructs”. These changes have led to a reframing of modern discourses that pattern pregnancy and motherhood leading to an acceptance of the need for greater expert management.
  4. The contrasting, overlapping and ambiguous stands within these frameworks focus to varying degrees on a women’s biological tie to her child and predisposition to instinctively know and be able to care for her child.
  5. In addition, a third, “unofficial popular discourse” comprising “old wives” tales and based on based on maternal experiences of childbirth has also been noted. These discourses have also been acknowledged in work exploring the experiences of those who apparently do not “conform” to conventional stereotypes of the “good mother”.
