Life begins at conception. You are not a Mother once baby is born. You are not "Mama to be" you are already a Mother. A gift given by God to bring beautiful souls into this earthly experience. You are a woman, you bear children and the weight if the world with them. Along with that, you also receive the most amazing blessings. No one is there to feel the spark and magic of those little moments when their eyes meet yours. When they run to you and you kiss their sadness away. Little hands. The magic of them experiencing a new thing. The excitement of them growing, sharing adventures and joys together. Having long conversations.
A beautiful beeswax candle to celebrate and commemorate a beautiful blip of time. I've had friends burn one during labor to celebrate the last of the baby bump stage or pregnancy.
