When Do You Think You've Officially Become a Mother?

Posted by   + Show Post

 In honor of Mother's Day, when do you ladies think you first become a mom?Are you officially considered a mom when you become pregnant or are you just a mother to be?, Or do you believe once you've given birth and actually taken on parental responsibilites makes you officially a mother? What are your thoughts?

I believe that I became a mom the day I found out I was pregnant. From that moment forward, I did everything I could to protect my baby.

When I gave birth. Before that, when I was pregnant, I was a mother to be.

 i realized i was a mom once i started putting her first. anything she needs, i wil give her, even if it means i don't eat. staying up all night when she is sick to comfort her and hold her when she isn't feeling well...that is a true moment of truth for me.

For me it was the moment after I gave birth that all the motherly instincts took over. Before, I was a mom to be.

Whenever someone feels like they are a mother....in pregnancy, after birth, during an adoption process or after the official adoption, step parenting ETC.

I was a mother when I realized her needs were more important than my own. Then 8 yrs later I had baby #2 and nursed him for a year. That made me feel like a mother...a very empowered mother.
