National Birth Mother’s Day

National Birth Mother’s Day is a holiday that honors the biological mothers of adopted children. It’s a holiday that’s observed on the Saturday before Mother’s Day and is observed by people all across the U.S and all around the world.

Mothers give up children for a variety of different reasons and this day attempts to not only educate people about this fact, but it’s also a day to remember their sacrifices. It’s also a day for biological mothers who are dealing with guilt to gain the tools that they need for coping with their loss. And, of course, it’s a day on which adopted children can take a moment to remember the women who brought them into this world.

The History Of National Birth Mother’s Day

Although the details of this holiday have all been lost to time, we do know approximately when and where this holiday was created. It was first created in 1990 among a number of biological mothers living in Seattle Washington. It’s been celebrated ever since then.

Facts About Birth Mothers

Below are a few facts about birth mothers that will get people thinking as they begin to prepare for this holiday.

  • Birth mothers can give up children for adoption because they don’t have a reliable partner, because they don’t have suitable living conditions, or because they don’t have the resources.
  • Birth mothers can also give children up simply because they’re not ready to have children.
  • Many birth mothers already have children.

Observing National Birth Mother’s Day

This is a day for everyone to understand that every biological mother’s experience is different and should be treated as a unique situation. For some people, it’s a day to remember their birth mother for bringing them into the world. For other people, it’s a day for adopted children to reconcile with their birth mother.

It all depends on the situation, so we can’t really give people advice on how this day should be observed because everyone should observe it in their own way. What we can suggest is that people should use the hashtag #NationalBirthMothersDay to spread the word about this holiday.
