Shame, guilt and the search for common ground

the article,AND the comments.

Encouragement vs judgement
support or pressure?

the language of motherhood.
the choices of motherhood.

guilt.
shame.

this is an important conversation.

When a woman makes an Informed Decision she gains confidence. She knows she has made the right choice for her circumstances, and can walk that path knowing she was informed. No excuses, no vague answers, no pressure. Just an Informed Decision.

Support starts by meeting the Mother on her ground. Inside her set of circumstances. This means empathy. Unconditional positive regard. active listening. And helping as asked.
