It's that time again... Mother's Day.
I hardly think you need to be reminded though. The media doesn't let us forget about it. We are bombarded with the happy, glowing reports of fantastic mothers all over the TV, radio and social media. It is in our face.
Flowers, breakfast in bed, hand prints, brunch... what else though?
"But what about those who wish they were mothers? Those who long with every bone in their body, to carry a child? Those who don't have a mother figure? Those who have lost a mother? What about them?"
"And by keeping our advice to ourselves and focusing on listening, we may actually make this day a little bit easier."
How are you impacted on Mother’s Day? Do you find yourself with mixed emotions? We would love to hear from you in the comments!
Maybe it’s a combination of celebration and grieving. Often birth can bring on similar emotions. There is a lot to process when life changes so drastically. Our labor doulas are trained to know how to attune to you through your labor and support you exactly where you find yourself.
