Becoming a mom is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. It’s made me lose myself and find myself in the most profound and beautiful ways. Entering motherhood has also given me something I never knew I wanted or needed; to be welcomed in with open arms by moms everywhere.

When you become a mom, you join the best club ever: The Mom Club. This motherhood club doesn’t judge. They don’t look for ways to prove you wrong or educate you on what you should do. Instead, they listen. They take you in with compassion, open hearts, and the most immense feeling of support you’ve ever felt.

The Bond of Motherhood

When I entered motherhood, the ground beneath me crumbled. I felt unstable ––like I couldn’t get anything right, and nothing I did seemed to help. During this time, I started working here at Expectful. So my days consisted of talking to pregnant women or moms while taking care of my one-month-old daughter Annabell.

While they didn’t know it, the women I spoke to during those early stages of motherhood helped me. In fact, I feel like they helped me more than I helped them! Each mom I talked to gave me some kind of insight or thought that made me feel stronger and more compassionate toward myself as a mother. They helped me feel more confident and understanding by opening up to me about their experiences about being a mom.

This made me realize the power of us mothers sharing our thoughts and experiences. It led me to write this piece as an inspiration to moms everywhere. While it was technically written to celebrate Mother’s Day, the following insights into motherhood and quotes about being a mom from moms like you can inspire us on our motherhood journeys.

I had one goal in mind while writing this piece. And that is to provide inspiration to moms like you. I want you to truly think about what you love about being a mom, and to know when times get tough, you need to ask yourself one simple question:

“What’s the best part about being a mom?”

Trust me. Once you ask yourself this question, you’ll know deep down inside this motherhood journey is worth it.

Quotes About Being a Mom From Moms Just Like You and Me

After speaking to so many inspirational everyday moms in my job, I knew I could count on any of our Expectful users to provide inspiration for moms about motherhood. And boy, was I right. I couldn’t be more taken aback by their thoughts. Each one is uniquely beautiful and reminds us all about how amazing it is to be a mother.

“The best part about being a mom is the constant reminder of the unconditional love that exists in the world and your heart. This love transcends everything and helps us mamas make space to direct some of it inward for ourselves.” -Rachel Broderick

“The best part about motherhood is that everything is new again and kind of magical because I get to experience things through the eyes of my son.” -Kristin

“Being a mom is such a rollercoaster of emotions: love, happiness, worry, sadness, and everything in between. But some things stand out:

  • Waking up to a smiling, giggling, happy baby who looks at you with love
  • Seeing your baby grow up and thrive and learn new things
  • Cuddles and kisses that make you forget any problems
  • The love and happiness you feel when you look at your baby – something you helped create and give life to.

Yes, some of those tough days of motherhood you’d like to forget, but I wouldn’t change anything for the world. Seeing her now and remembering my difficult pregnancy and those weeks she spent in the hospital when she was first born has made me realize how grateful and blessed I am to be a mom.” -Vina Wilson

“This is a hard one to describe. Here is my attempt to do so, but really, there are no words. The bond, love, and attachment you feel in motherhood are beyond words. It’s a feeling that just can’t be described. To my children, I want to say, ‘You are the dearest thing I have. Nothing can surpass the feeling of motherhood. You are the best gift Dad gave me, and I will do anything to make you happy.” – Nili Krassner (The Mom of one of Expectful’s Co-Founders)

“The best part about being a mom is experiencing everything again through my daughter’s eyes. She sees everything with total awe and wonder, and it makes me remember what a miracle this life is. She reminds me to slow down, be present and take it all in. My love for her is boundless, and I am so grateful to see the world from her beautiful perspective.” -Jessica Mougis

“The best part of being a mom is experiencing true, complete, and unconditional love!” -Jessica Mougis’s Mother

“I could come up with a hundred specific reasons about why motherhood is wonderful. But I think it all boils down to watching your child develop into their own person. It’s incredible to see what they like and dislike, the witty things they say, the things that make them laugh, and the way they think. I also like comparing my children to Eric and me and seeing what they’ve inherited from us. And I’m happy to have learned that that part of being a mom never seems to end. I remember seeing other moms with school-age kids when Andrew and Tyler were toddlers. I felt terrible for them that they had “old” kids. But then when my toddlers became teenagers, I realized it was just as rewarding because they still needed mothering but were also old enough to do more fun things together.” -Amy
