Madame Ratignolle is a wonderful mother. She is described as feminine, she visibly loves her children, and she is pregnant. Ratignolle is also a caring and sympathetic friend, who offers Edna her assistance and advice.

Mademoiselle Reisz is in most ways..... Madame Ratignolle's opposite. She is a musician, has an artistic temperament.... meaning she is temperamental, and she is described as ugly and irritable. In addition, she doesn't have a motherly bone in her body.
