If you are a mother, I hope you have been showered by your family with love, gifts and other surprises today. I also hope you have a chance to feel any feelings that may come with today, whether that is joy, sadness, grief, fear, love, loss, gratitude, comfort or peace. Because I have been a mother now for nearly a decade (if you include my pregnancy), I thought I would share some of my favorite Mother's Day memories.
If you don't know already, I actually began my blogging journey before I became a doula and started my business. Writing was a way for me to connect with others and express my feelings after becoming a mom. My mommy blog was such a useful outlet for me and eventually led me to begin researching a doula career. That is one of the reasons why I blog about a mix of personal, professional and educational topics.
Below you will find some of my favorite blog posts about motherhood. A few of them have links to my original blog on Tumblr (do people still use Tumblr?) so you may find some other gems there as well! Please leave a comment on any posts that resonate with you and have a beautiful day!
