You made me a mother

Video credit

“I made you, but you made me a mother.”

I’m typing this with a big lump in my throat and eyes full of tears. This is a stunning video that captures the experiences of real Mums and how they feel about being a Mother.

What are the little things that make you feel like a parent? When did you really feel like a Mum or Dad for the first time? For me it was when I realised that just being snuggled up in my arms was enough to soothe my baby, she didn’t need anything else, just me.

This video really reminded me that every time a baby is born, so is a parent. Even if you are having your second, third, fourth or tenth baby. You are a different and new parent to each one. You have to learn about them and they have to learn about you. It’s all new again.

Enjoy learning about each other and growing together!
