"The experience of becoming a mother and the challenges and obstacles you face can make you feel powerful."
"Pregnancy and mothering is not the same for everyone."
The Birth of a Mother Panel, was a powerful discussion around becoming pregnant, giving birth, postpartum and learning to be a mother. There were 3 panelists:
Temi Aregbesola-Okere, Founder of the Omugwo Box (A postnatal gift box for mothers)
Rosie Carter Suso, A Doula & Maternal Health Advocate
Lubunga Lucindi Chawelwa, A Fitness & Maternal Health Advocate
The women shared their personal experience and journey into motherhood. Let’s face it, pregnancy isn’t easy and neither is giving birth. It’s important that a woman takes time to really prepare herself for the wild ride of motherhood.
This was a rich discussion and one step towards normalizing conversations around the reality of motherhood.
