International Bereaved Mother’s Day.

Today is International Bereaved Mother’s Day and I can’t help but share this beautiful video from CarlyMarie that helps to shine a light on what it is like to experience and survive the unimaginable death of a baby or child of any age (including adult children) or gestation.

“Mother’s Day is a day of the year that we come together to celebrate all mothers around the world. It’s a day that is intended to bring joy, recognition, love and appreciation to these incredible women that do so much for humanity. However, if you have experienced the death of one or more of your children, struggle to conceive a child or are unable to fall pregnant at all, this day can often bring up feelings of isolation, unworthiness, pain and sadness. Much of society has forgotten the true meaning of Mother’s Day and fails to support and recognize all true mothers.

International Bereaved Mother’s Day is intended to be a temporary movement. It is a heart centered attempt at healing the official Mother’s Day for all mothers. I believe that we can do this and that sometime in the near future there will be no need for this day at all because all true mothers will be recognized, loved, supported and celebrated. This year’s Mother Hearts Project is set to open peoples eyes as to what it is like to live as a bereaved mother.

Sunday May 7th 2017, get together with your closest friends and family and celebrate your beautiful Mother Heart. Celebrate your babies and children. Lets speak about the true meaning of Mother’s Day. Let us start some healing conversations.”  -ProjectHeal website
