#MeAsAMum: Celebrate YOURSELF this Mother’s Day
At Lansinoh, we celebrate mums and their amazing achievements every single day. Mums are incredible and we’re in awe of everything they do.
But we’re also well aware that lots of new mums suffer from insecurity that they’re not doing a good enough job; that some are plagued with guilt that they’re not doing enough for their babies; and many make unhealthy comparisons to other mums. And quite frankly, we’ve had enough of it! You ARE enough and you deserve to give yourself that credit.
So this Mother’s Day, we’ve asked five mums to pen an open Mother’s Day message to themselves. A love letter that makes them reflect on all the incredible things they’ve achieved as a mum, the dark times they’ve come through, and the person they’ve become since having a child.
We’re calling this the #MeAsAMum campaign, and we hope you feel inspired to write your own Mother’s Day message. Tag us with the #MeAsAMum hashtag for a repost!
