Winston has no reaction at all to the woman. He comprehends the fact that she is his biological mother, but he feels nothing.... no emotional attachment at all. 

“She might, thought Winston, be his mother. She was about the right age and physique, and it was probable that people changed somewhat after twenty years in a forced labor camp”
