Our Message this Mother’s Day

May 9, 2019

In honor of Mother’s day, we’re reflecting on the women who do the hardest job in the world.

With the announcement of the birth of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first baby this week, Prince Harry said: “It’s been the most amazing experience that I could ever possibly imagine. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, but we’re both absolutely thrilled.”

It really is beyond comprehension.


To all of the mothers celebrating their first mother’s day this year:

Congratulations, you’re doing great! Please give yourselves a break.


To all of you who are grieving this mother’s day, no matter how old or fresh the loss: 

You are not alone. We are here with you. Our hearts ache for you.


To mothers of all ages and stages, living with mental health challenges:

We see you. Life is tough, but so are you.


This mother’s day, we celebrate ourselves, the loving mothers in our lives, and those who came before us.
