Motherhood. It’s amazing, it’s challenging. It’s full of victories, defeats, tears, laughter, emotion and so much love. Mothers undergo a big shift in their lives when they become moms, and it all starts with their birth stories.
After nine months, when a woman bears a child, she not only gives birth to a child, but to a mother as well. And although countless women have given birth, each story is unique, important and special.
Today we are sharing some birth stories to celebrate Motherhood. Get ready to smile, cringe, laugh and cry because really, that is motherhood.
