At Recognised we believe children or no children, motherhood takes many forms and different expressions. The role of mother requires complete dedication and the giving of oneself in love to those around you; be that your own children, or those you care for. We strongly believe that every expression of motherhood deserves recognition and value.
March is an incredible time of the year in which we not only celebrate Women’s Month, but specifically get to celebrate motherhood with Mother's Day on the 19th March. It provides the time to highlight the role mothers play in society and to say thank you to those around us.
However, we also want to recognise that for many it is a painful time with complex and varied emotions. Some key people to think of in this time are:
1. THOSE LONGING FOR A CHILD
2. mothers grieving the loss of a child
3. friends who have lost their mums
4. SINGLE MOTHER FAMILIES
5. MUMS SPENDING MOTHER'S DAY ALONE
These are just a few of the many that need recognising at Mother's Day. Don't forget to check in with loved ones and friends who may be finding this time of year hard. Although a wonderful celebration for many, for so many others it is a strong reminder of grief and painful moments in their life.
Sometimes we don't have the words, but even a very simple message to say you are thinking of them can go a long way. As you read this, take a moment to think about who might be in need of extra recognition and love at this time and reach out today.
Each and every mother is deserving.

This Recognised Heart Popon® is a beautiful and meaningful gift. The Heart is a symbol for Motherhood and 100% of profits are donated to support the powerful work of two leading charities supporting mums worldwide, Little Village and Pregnancy Twinning.
The Heart Popon recognises each and every mother and the many different journeys, challenges and contexts we all face. You cannot paint one defining picture of what it looks like to be a mum or write one conclusive definition as to what it means. Children or no children, motherhood takes many forms and different expressions. All are a creative process to form many amazing, unique and different works of art... or as Recognised puts it, works of heart. This is a perfect gift for new mothers, Mother's day gifts and as a gift of recognition to those still waiting for children.
