At Tulsa Fertility Center, we know that Mother’s Day can be a difficult holiday for women who are trying to conceive. However, the holiday we celebrate today is not really the one that Anna Jarvis, the woman who founded the commemoration in the United States in 1908, intended it to be.
After nursing her ailing mother for several years, Anna Jarvis created Mother’s Day as a spiritual day of celebration to honor the love and care that mothers and women provide every day. Years later, Anna Jarvis condemned the commercialization of the holiday.
This year, Tulsa Fertility Center suggests that we ignore the commercial aspects and take back the holiday by celebrating the love and devotion that motherhood represents, things we all have to give in abundance.
As someone trying to conceive and struggling with infertility, here are some ways to celebrate the holiday by giving your love and your time to others:
You can also celebrate the love and devotion you and your spouse share on this day:
Don’t forget to celebrate yourself while you’re at it. You are expending an abundance of time, love and devotion on your goal of getting pregnant and being a mother. There are many ways that we become mothers in this day and age, and they are all equally wonderful. They all lead us to our main goal, as well as the real reason for Mother’s Day—a joyous celebration of love.
