A special place is occupied by anxiety about their future, which is often masked by concern for the children, or even for the country as a whole. Naturally, the projection of the crisis on their environment leads to attempts to change it environment: Job, country, family. Some of the women in this period is filled with inner emptiness birth to another child.
