Mother’s Day

Yesterday we celebrated Mother’s Day here in México, one of the most important holidays in our country, celebrated worldwide on different dates. Surely most of us remember when we were little how  we used to be dressed us up in funny costumes and how we sang and danced in front of an audience of mothers, all crying with happiness, clapping to the rhythm of all the songs that we performed!

Being a mother must not be an easy task. I am not a mother yet; nevertheless, I have to say that my own mom has been giving me love daily since I was born. She had me at 21, a complicated age because of all the normal changes and challenges at this age.

My mother and my father supported each other and were each other’s companions.  Companionship is vital for all of us, including for the fetus as it develops in the mother’s womb. Both parents and others can create a meaningful, strong bond with soon-to-be-born children from the moment of conception. Pregnant and birthing women, as well as newborns, need to be surrounded by people that love and care for them.

Soon, the Center for Adolescents of San Miguel de Allende (CASA) will be launching its eight-month public education campaign, titled “Nos acompañamos para dar a luz”—“We support each other to give birth.”  At CASA, we support the right of a mother to choose whom she wishes to have with her during the important processes of pregnancy and birth.

For more information, please contact us at campaign2018@casa.org.mx, or telephone us in Mexico at 415 15 4 60 90 ext. 103. You can also contact us through casa.org.mx or the CASA Facebook page.
