The mothers who admit they regret having children

It's perhaps one of the most difficult things for mothers to ever admit - the idea that they regret having their children, don't enjoy being a mum, and aren't particularly maternal.
Three women tell us what it's like to deal with those feelings - in some cases it's a feeling they've never admitted to family and friends, let alone their children.
But they agreed to speak to us to try and break down the myth that motherhood is for everyone, and stop the vilification of those who don't enjoy it.
