Are you okay after Mother’s Day?
I ask because I know, from personal experience, the day can be either glorious, or leave you feeling deflated – or a bit of both.

Your best friend didn't acknowledge your first Mother’s Day without your mum. Your husband totally forgot. Step mums were not acknowledged. Women struggling with infertility were sad.

The day was not exactly what you expected - but take heart in one thing – you’re most certainly not alone.
