An Ode to Mother proposes an open dialog about motherhood. It is an exchange of experiences based on interviews about pregnancy, birth and life itself, without taboos. Apart from words, we share visual stories too.
The project was born from an accumulation of thoughts that needed the proper space and attention. Becoming a mother was a life-changing experience, with mixed feelings, deep emotions, an encounter with inner lights and shadows. If this speaks to you, stay, read and share.
The blog is carefully curated by Silvia Conde. You can support it here: buymeacoffee.com/anodetomother. Every donation helps us to keep An Ode to Mother independent and authentic.
"Motherhood is being a mom. I know this sounds tremendously simple, for such a complex task, but for me it actually all comes down to that. There's not one way of being a mother, and that's actually something I learnt when becoming one."

"Motherhood is an encounter with yourself, constantly. Pure transformation."
"Showing this story is so important for human growth, evolution and healing. Motherhood, balancing work and motherhood, birth and nipples... it should all be seen as normal, wonderful, not a threat or something to be censored or behind closed curtains. We are living in 2020, it's never been more important to talk and see both motherhood and birth."
