Abstract
The purpose of the study was to examine how mothers from 30 to 35 years living in a big city felt that stress and status affects their everyday lives and health.

This study is an empirical and qualitative study based on interviews with five mothers with children 0-5 years, residing in Stockholm. Both Swedish and foreign research is the basis for this analysis. The analysis was based on two theoretical starting points, the dramaturgical theory and women's role theory. The interviewed mothers picture of ideal mothers, as the media presents, led to stress of their daily lives. Awareness of this paradox resulted in less anxious mothers in this study. All the interviewed mothers put very high demands on themselves. To make both a career and being a good mother was a complex paradox for the mothers in this study. Previous research used in this study show the same results. Help and support from the father, family, friends and society reduce mothers stress and improves health. (Less)
