The Holding Mother's Principles


Birth matters and impacts the way you experience motherhood.


Babies don´t exist without mothers (and others).

Babies are individuals in their own right and should be seen and respected as such.


Mothers need to be cared for in order to care for their babies.


Matrescence is a vulnerable period for a woman becoming a mother and needs to be acknowledged and respected.


Being a good enough mother is the perfect supply for the parent-infant relationship.


Maternal ambivalence is an intrinsic part of motherhood.


Society should consider the needs and concerns of mothers, babies and families a priority.
