It’s an amazing feat, giving birth. Breakfast in bed seems a little tokenistic when it comes to saying “thanks Mum”.
Difficult to put into perspective really; on the one hand childbirth is so ‘everyday’ (like hundreds of babies born every minute right?), on the other it fits comfortably in the category marked ‘miraculous’.
Whatever your thoughts, you have to admit, our mums are pretty special (Think about it. Who else do you know that the first time you met you put through that kind of pain and anxiety?).
This week we’re celebrating joint special days; International Midwives Day on the 5th May and Mothers Day on the 12th. To honour both and acknowledge their important connection 2h is giving you the opportunity to go ‘public’ with your love for mum and support our Safe Arrivals project at the same time.
Go to the 2h Facebook page and in 30 words or less tell us ‘Why Mum is so Special’, upload a photo of you and your mum. Instead (or in addition) of buying flowers, or handkerchiefs, or Susan Boyle’s Greatest Hits, follow the donate link to sponsor one midwife’s full day’s training for just $35.00.
Then share the Gift of Life with Mum all over again!
