It truly does take a village….a village of compassion!

I have a beautiful friend and client who wrote a great blog on mom shaming yesterday. Reflections by RebeccaCheck it out!! Here are my observations! When did we become such horrible individuals that we have to shame other moms so we feel better. It’s rampant ladies and I don’t like it one bit! It doesn’t come just from moms either. Birth workers also have joined this game. When were we given the right to be militant in our teachings? As a doula, I clean up a lot of aftermath because a birth-worker didn’t watch her tongue and choose her words wisely. It’s not rocket science. It’s compassion!! We are all in this together. It doesn’t matter if we are black or white or purple, we are moms and one thing moms need is support. I always tell my clients, it’s not what is right or wrong, it’s about what works for you. If that means formula feeding, pacifier sucking, and crib sleeping for you then so be it!! I have another client who calls her family a tribe, well we are a tribe ladies. Next time you wanna tell a mama that formula stinks or you are doing it all wrong, step back and examine your own life. Perhaps there is something going on that needs to change within you!
