This Mother's Day, we want to celebrate the unique joys that come with motherhood — the nappies and the laughter;
the sleepless nights and the morning snuggles. We speak to four incredible mums about their experiences and how
becoming a mum changed their life and what they've learnt in the process.

"What does it mean to be a Mother today?"
"When I had my first son Hakavai, a whole bunch of other girlfriends had
their first babies as well. So that was really cool that we could catch up
for mother's groups and share our baby's milestones with each other. I think
having some kind of mother's group or support network, whether it's virtual
or whether it's in real life, is invaluable."

"I have really been doing some soul searching lately because it makes
me realise I have to be the best version of myself for my three kids.
And the reason why is because I am constantly their teacher. And so I
need to be the best version of myself for them to then understand and
guide them and teach them to do the same."

"I've learnt a lot of lessons, but I've really acknowledged the
importance of being open with communication and being really honest
with myself. Because there have been times where I've been finding it
hard and I feel fortunate that I can talk to my husband and my family
and my friends about that without too many issues. I've always worn my
heart on my sleeve and am happy to open up."

"I do think that mothering is a lot easier when you
have other mums around you that can be in that moment with you.
It is really difficult I think for other people to understand how
much you're going through. Especially after giving birth. If you can,
just find some kind of support there, that you can just have those chats
with like 'today's been really hard'".
