Mothering the Mother
They call you mother. Mother is so much more than a name or title. It will bring you pure joy when babbled by your baby for the first time. You might find it frustration when its yelled by your toddler over and over. Sheer panic when its screamed in the middle of the night when your dear child wakes frightened from a bad dream. Your heart will swoon when its followed by a simple I love you. You are the one they call mother, you are called to bravely serve your family. We are called to serve you, the mother.
“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”
-Barbara Katz Rothman
