What if we…


stopped glaring at mothers who choose to breastfeed in public?

stopped glaring at mothers who choose to bottlefeed in public?

stopped judging mothers who had cesarean sections?

stopped judging mothers who gave birth vaginally?

stopped judging mothers who had VBACS?

stopped making mothers feel guilty for the choices we made in childbirth?

stopped making mothers feel guilty and ashamed for struggling with a Postpartum Mood Disorder?

stopped making mothers feel guilty for the choices we’re making in childcare?

and instead

began to offer support and compassion to mothers who

breastfeed in public?

bottlefeed in public?

gave birth via cesarean section?

gave birth vaginally?

gave birth via VBAC?

make childbirth choices out of love and respect for their family’s chosen lifestyle?

choose to seek help for our Postpartum Mood Disorder experiences in a way that also fits our lifestyle?

make childcare choices out of love and respect for their family’s chosen lifestyle?

What if, indeed?

What if……..

    • It is absolutely tragic if you ask me.

      I hated that when I bought formula after seven months of exclusively pumping for my daughter, born with a cleft palate, I feared being judged as I checked out with a massive cart full of cans of formula. I shouldn’t have felt guilty. I shouldn’t have had to worry about someone trying to give me a speech.

      I’m all for educating. All for creating awareness. But I am oh so against judging others for decisions they’ve made.

  1. I don’t think that there is much better way to say it then… “the world of motherly love would be a much better caring place”
