Good SC.

"A" should be the answer. No need to use "being".

I would also go for E.
One in a hundred cases "being" can also be the correct answer in GMAT.

dips,

In this case, use of being is incorrect.
We are emphasizing Noun and here being is not needed."Herself" alone will suffice.

Yes, there are cases in which usage is "being" is correct in GMAT.
Ex-

Cooperative apartment houses have the peculiar distinction of being dwellings that must also operate as businesses.
(A) of being dwellings that must also operate as businesses
(B) of dwellings that must also operate like business
(C) that they are dwellings that must operate like business
(D) that, as dwellings, they must also operate like businesses
(E) to be a dwelling that must also operate as a business

Here, we can not just arrive at conclusion that the options with "being" would be wrong.
This SC is testing idiom "distinction of being".
So A is correct.

I would go with E as well. B seemed right, but I think since there is no coma after herself. Hence I chose E. What's the OA?

One of those cases when use of word 'being' is acceptable.

I was between A and B but I picked B because in A , IMO, we need a comma after 'Herself' to read something like:

Herself, the mother of 7 kids, Mrs ....

In my opinion A should be the answer.
Source of this SC?
Do you have any explanation why B is a right answer?

I ended up picking B

I'm having a hard time to explain it. A is missing a descriptor or at least something that links herself and mother. At the same time "being" is parallel to discusses. B just sounds right whereas E does not.
