Medals for Moms

 

You don’t get a medal for motherhood,

but maybe you should!

The sacrifices that we make starting in pregnancy, through birth and then that first year are HUGE!

For some moms the sacrifices might start

  • while they are trying to get pregnant.
  • with morning sickness.
  • with bedrest to help the baby stay in longer.
  • with the birth.
  • with struggling with breastfeeding.
  • with sleepless nights.

Regardless of when the sacrifices start, one thing is for sure. All moms make sacrifices!

We don’t make these sacrifices FOR a medal, but we certainly do DESERVE one.

A medal inspired by 2 real life moms. For only $5.95 each.




Which Moms Deserve a Medal?

When I started creating this medal I was thinking of the how Natural Childbirth Moms are told, “You don’t get a medal for not using drugs.”

But as I started thinking I realized ALL Moms deserve medals. Here are some reasons I came up with. Please send me any of your ideas! Sheridan AT enjoybirth DOT com

  • Natural Childbirth Moms – birthing without medication is empowering and amazing and, of course, you don’t do it FOR a medal. But you do DESERVE one!
  • Epidural Mom – Maybe you were planning on a natural birth, but your birth lasted so long, you chose an epidural so you could rest. Maybe you got the epidural in the parking lot. Either way, you pushed your baby out! You didn’t do it FOR a medal, but you do DESERVE one!
  • Cesarean Moms – Maybe you gave up your dream for a vaginal birth because your baby was breech. Maybe you had was a scary emergency situation that required a cesarean. Maybe you had a long birthing time and you made the choice for a cesarean. No matter why you had one, you chose to have a major surgery for your baby! You didn’t do it FOR a medal. But you do DESERVE one!
