Motherhood Means…

Home | Motherhood Means…

At BC Women’s Health Foundation, we recognize that Motherhood and Mother’s Day can carry different meanings for everyone and that the word “mother” can be defined in many ways. This Mother’s Day, we want to honour “motherhood” and all that it encompasses – joy, love, dedication, hardship, exhaustion, and loss. 

Motherhood is not just caring for a child and it can look different from community to community. But what we can all agree on is that motherhood requires support and investment. This is why BC Women’s Health Foundation continues to support maternal and newborn health in our province.
