Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers in our community! We hope you have a special weekend with family, friends, and all the important people in your lives. We also encourage you to be gentle with yourself if it’s a tough day for you. Be sure to reach out to friends, family, or support services (including the community here!) if you need to.

We know that Mother’s Day can sometimes be a tricky and complex day. Bereavement, difficult relationships with our own children or parents, parents who have lost children, or if your child is struggling - it’s a day that can bring up a lot of mixed emotions. We want to acknowledge all the mothers who may be feeling the impact of Mother’s Day this weekend, and let you know that you’re not alone. We also want to acknowledge the important role of mothers in the lives of their kids as role models and incredible sources of support. 

If you’re a mother who is struggling, we encourage you to check out this list here of services you can connect with. The ReachOut parent and carer community is also here to support you, if you would like to share what you’re experiencing in the community. Or, you might prefer to connect with the ReachOut 1:1 free parent coaching service

We hope you are able to connect with friends and family this weekend, or take some time to engage in self care!
