We believe that the most important thing for a mother to do is to love her children… and we’re pretty sure you’re already doing that very well!  


 

COVER-FacebookWe need to make sure that we, as mothers are nurturing ourselves – so that we can care for our children in the best way possible.

At The Mother magazine this is what we aim to provide to our readers – we want mothers to feel encouraged and validated, to read about different mothering / parenting  ideas and to realise that there are others out there that believe the same things they do.

When a mother finds a moment to refuel – she is able to be more patient, more understanding, and more gentle. We hope The Mother magazine can be a moment of calm, leaving you feeling like you’ve spent some quality time with an old friend…


The Mother magazine is published 4 times a year, in time with the seasons. We highlight gentle mothering, looking at natural ways for our children to grow up. We publish articles about natural play, natural learning, natural living, gentle parenting, and also inspirational motherhood. (click images)

 From Our Readers:

“Oh my goodness! At last, I’ve found a magazine that gets me, and what I wish for for my family! Smart, supportive, thought provoking, gentle, a revelation! What do I love about it? That the overlying gentle, respectful and supportive attitude towards raising a family touches on so many areas from preconception, to teenagehood. It’s a magazine for life! Thank you, a million times thank you, for speaking your vision, that is such a match for mine!” – Sandy McG-B, Auckland, New Zealand

“The Mother has provided me with solace, sympathy, sisterhood, inspiration, strength and joy since the day I discovered it. To know there was a world of women, men, families out there who wanted to parent from the heart, without fear gave me the confidence to become the mother I am today. It gave me the strength to fight what seemed at times like a daily battle against the tide of ill will towards my child and the way I wanted to parent him, intuitively, kindly, beautifully. It has always brought me great joy to see it land on my mat. It used to land across the world in a high rise apartment that held an isolated mama and babe, wrapped in brown paper with images of breastfeeding mamas tending the garden that made my neighbours titter. Now it lands here in my heart of a full family home, glossy, celebratory, bold but still with pictures of family life in all its rawest beauty. I hope a reflection of both how I and the world around me has changed. I still cherish its arrival, a hand outstetched in sisterhood, a smile of approval that we are all in this together, doing our very best at bringing beauty and kindness into the lives of the next generation. It is a gift to myself, a celebration of us all. I am strong now in my parenting path, I know what I believe, what works, how carefully to tread and where to fight the battles that need to be braved – but I still look to The Mother for it’s wisdom and care. It is a beautiful relationship and one I intend to take nourishment from as my children continue to blossom and grow. I cannot thank you enough.”  – Hana Borrowman, Birmingham UK

You seem to find themes that no other magazine offers that are personal and relevant. Congratulations on well-written pieces and well-designed artistry. As an author I am pleased that your values match my views seen on Huffington Post and in my book, Unlocking Parental Intelligence.Keep up the remarkable work.”  –  Laurie Hollman, Ph.D., psychoanalyst who specializes in infant-parent, child, adolescent, and adult psychotherapyand is author of Unlocking Parental Intelligence and numerous parenting articles on Huffington Post and Moms Magazine.

“I started buying The Mother Magazine before my son was even conceived. I knew that I needed to surround myself with a ‘village’ of positive voices on all things birth and motherhood. I knew I wanted a healthy pregnancy with as little intervention as possible, a natural home birth, a beautiful breastfeeding relationship (all of which I achieved, in part due I’m sure to the fabulous support of the magazine) I also knew that I needed the voices of other women to encourage and inspire me and balance the mainstream ideals which I was sure to come up against. The arrival of The Mother is a joy and I devour each issue with the same fervour and delight now that my son is two as I did when he was just a wish in my heart. I gobble up each issue within hours, always feeling a sense of peace about my mothering journey, inspired by each article and lifted by the artwork and photographs and a connection to all other mothers who are sharing their journey.  I’ve been brought to laughter and to tears on many occasions and now this simple, beautiful magazine is as good as any old friend invited over for a cup of herbal tea when it lands on the doormat. Thank you!”  – Kate Lomax

“When I became a mother nearly 9 months ago, I felt lost and found myself drowning in a sea of well-meaning comments and advice. It seemed many people had a style of parenting that I should be using, and It didn’t matter that I’d read a hundred and one books about trusting my intuition and attachment parenting, of course It all went out the window when I held my daughter in my arms. We’d had a difficult birth and a long separation. Between ICU visits and healing my own body I experienced the lowest low of my life so far. A friend came to visit us at the hospital and gifted me a copy of The Mother, alongside a huge packet labelled arnica! I spent the better part of my time in the ICU savouring each inspiring story and feeling grateful for the community of loving women behind each one. We are healing slowly and I know The Mother has played a part in that healing. Thank you for continuing to share and encourage us to think for ourselves and remind us of who we are. I’m starting to remember…” – Niki Christiansen

“I received my Mother magazine yesterday and the moment I saw it in the mailbox, I felt my heart smile. It is on my top 5 list of what I look forward to every few months, my husband can attest to that! I love every SINGLE article, I savor over every page and am so sad when I finish reading each issue. I have all of them saved and would never throw them away. I always refer to articles I have read in discussions with other people and look back at them from time to time when I want to remember something that I’ve read. It is such a valuable part of my mothering journey and I am forever grateful for discovering it when I did with my first child. Much love to everyone who is behind its creation!” – Kelly Murdock

“I discovered The Mother Magazine 7 years ago after the birth of my first child in a distant land, far away from friends or family. As a floundering new mother, so overwhelmed by love, duty and the significance of this new role, searching so desperately for some kindred spirit, someone, kinder, wiser and more grounded in natural motherhood to encourage my way, The Mother filled the spaces I so desperately craved to be filled. It continues to fill those spaces so beautifully and capture my thoughts and dreams and inspire my path as a mother and as a part of this tribe.” – from the UK
