Mum guilt is a feeling of inadequacy and self-doubt that many mothers experience regarding their parenting decisions or actions. It is a common phenomenon that can arise from various sources such as parenting choices, work-life balance, and personal time. Mums may feel guilty about not spending enough time with their children, not being present during important moments, or making choices that do not align with their own or others' expectations.
