1. 1.We attended court last November to support this Surrogate Mother (SM) in the case to ‘set aside’ the Parental Order. We understand this case to be a one of a kind which was won on the basis of consent which we will explore in an upcoming blog but first some background…
2. The SM’s relationship with newly-introduced Commissioning Parents (CPs) progressed quickly and the first donor egg conceived embryo was transferred within 6 months. There was no long history of friendship and this all took place without guidance of an agency. #surrogacy

It's hard to express the emotions and happiness that she is feeling. Imagine the lady that has spent her whole life in the village and did not even see the aeroplane from a close angle.
Yes, she became the first one from her generation to travel abroad and the second lady from my village (Of course first one is my wife). This is a pretty special moment for my family and me!

The only thing that hurts me is that I wish my dad was around to experience this!

Wondering how #motherhood affects our brains and minds longterm? 🧠🤰Our new @TrendsCognSci review integrates human & animal maternal brain literatures w/ theories of cognitive ageing, to offer a framework for understanding maternal cognition across the lifespan!! @ParentalBrain
Here, we describe the transition to motherhood as a major biosocial life event and a neurocognitive developmental stage which may POSITIVELY impact cognition and the brain across the lifespan!! 🧠💪@SharnaJamadar @hjvrutherford @AvramHolmes Access it here:…
We review changes to maternal cognition across the lifespan, using a neurodevelopmental framework to explain a U-shaped cognitive trajectory of:
(1) cognitive decrements in pregnancy
(2) postpartum cognitive renormalisation, &
(3) potential cognitive improvements long-term

We all know that babies inherit their microbiome from mum👩‍👧(vertical gene transfer).

First time ever, a brand new🔥study finds another novel mechanism for microbiome sharing between mothers & their infants: horizontal gene 🧬 transfer.

Why is this totally crazy?

Let's unpack🧵 Image
Let's first clarify why these findings might seem shocking:

This paper found hundreds of mother-to-infant gene bacterial transmission events WITHOUT transmission of the full bacterial genomes themselves.

This is called horizontal gene transfer.…
This paper, a #multiomics longitudinal study just out in @CellCellPress, tracked the co-development of microbiomes & metabolomes from late pregnancy to 1 year of age in 70 mother-infant pairs.

Top 5 main findings, explained👇 Image

“I came to terms with my gender identity early on, but my parents could not accept it, so they disowned me.

#Inspiration #GoodDeeds #Kindness #Motherhood #HumanityIsAlive #TheBetterIndia
I ended up on the streets outside a temple with nowhere to go and was finally aided by a trans community. ⁠

I do not want anyone else to ever feel the way I did or go through the challenges I faced.”, says Rajkumari Kinnar from #Jharkhand .
He single-handedly raised a family of orphaned kids and spent 2/3rd of her earnings on the needy.⁠

While facing massive backlash from members of the transgender community, she took care of 5 girls and 3 boys, including a 9-month-old baby.

“I applied for adoption when I was 21. But Renee was handed over to me when I turned 24, " recalls actress #SushmitaSen, an independent adult.

#Inspiration #SingleMother #Parenting #Motherhood #Adoption #Children #FatherDaughter Image
She started the adoption process, yet the judge hesitated to grant her permission on the grounds of #marriage.⁠ Sushmita fostered her elder daughter Renee for 6 months before the final adoption hearing.
Upon being asked by the judge, if he worried about Sushmita’s marriage after adopting a child, her father replied. ⁠

"While no father would be okay with that, he was sure he never raised her to only be some worried.

"Mommy, sometimes a part of me feels like it would be easier to have a different mommy. Not always and not me fully. Am I hurting you by saying this?" I have been preparing for 2 years to answer this question & I aced it! #parenting in #NEISVoid #LongCovid #motherhood🧵1/n
First, I lightened the mood my saying "believe me, I would like to be a different person as well, in a different body". He smiled immediately.
Next, I acknowledged that his thoughts were perfectly rational & had no malice at all. 2/n
I went on to explain that I was not upset. He simply wants to go on playdates with friends without worrying about infecting mommy & making her more sick, or go eat out in restaurants or not be the only kid in class masking. Any kid would want that, any adult would too! 3/n

ماں کا کچن سانجھا ہوتا ہے
ماں کے کچن میں دودھ ختم نہیں ہوتا
چاےٌ کی پتی کا حساب نہیں ہوتا
کچن جب چاہو جھوٹے برتن رکھ دو
جب چاہو دیسی گھی کے پراٹھے کی فرمائش کردو
جب چاہو چوکی پر بیٹھ کر لال ڈبے میں رکھا گُڑ چاٹ لو
آتے جاتے مونگ پھلی منہ میں دبا لو
ماں کبھی مڑ کر نہیں پوچھے گی
کہ پنیر کہاں گیا
کیلے کس نے کھاےٗ؟
ماں کا کچن دو چولہے کا بھی ہو تو پورے کنبے کا سالن بنالیتا ہے
ماں کا تندور بالشت بھر کا بھی ہو تو دس جنوں کی روٹی بن جاتی ہے
آگر تمہیں ماں کا کچن نصیب ہے تو یقین جانو تم امیر آدمی ہو کہ رات کے دو بجے بھی گھر پہنچو گے تو گھڑے کا ٹھنڈا پانی


کپڑے میں لپٹی تازی روٹی لذیذ سالن ملے گا
ہر ماں سونے سے پہلے اپنی مسافر اولاد کا کھانا باندھ کر کچن میں رکھ دیتی ہے
کبھی تو نادان گھر آئے گا
آتے ہی کچن میں داخل ہوگا اس یقین کے ساتھ کہ ماں کبھی اولاد کو بھوکا نہیں سونے دیتی

In the TNG episode "When the Bough Breaks" (S01E17), a dying race steals some of the children from the Enterprise. An obviously upset mother asks Picard "How are you going to get them back?"
Beverly responds with "Sit down... don't give in to fear. We all knew what the risks were when we signed on, and that's the choice we made."
WHAT? Who thought this was a good line for her to say?
I don't remember her feeling that way when Wesley's life was on the line because his goofy ass can't catch a ball in "Justice" (S01E08).

భరత మాత అనగా భారతదేశం తల్లి, భరతమాత భారతదేశం యొక్క జాతీయ మానవీకరణ రూపాన్ని కలిగినటువంటి దేవమాత. ఈమె సాధారణంగా మహిళ వలె కుంకుమ రంగు చీరను ధరించి జాతీయ జెండాను పట్టుకొని ఉంటుంది, కొన్నిసార్లు సింహంతో పాటు ఉంటుంది. Image
భరతమాత యొక్క చిత్రం 19 వ శతాబ్దంలో భారత స్వాతంత్ర్య ఉద్యమంలో ఏర్పాటుచేయబడింది. కిరణ్ చంద్ర బెనర్జీ చే రూపొందిన ఒక నాటకంలో 1873 లో మొదటిసారి భరతమాత ప్రదర్శింపబడింది. బంకిం చంద్ర చటర్జీ యొక్క 1882 నవల ఆనందమాత్ పరిచయ భక్తిగీతం "వందేమాతరం"", వెంటనే ఈ పాట
ఉద్భవిస్తున్న భారత స్వాతంత్ర్య ఉద్యమ పాటగా మారింది.

తొలుత దేశ స్వాతంత్య్రం కోసం పోరాడిన అరబిందో ఘోష్ భారతమాత అనే పదానికి శ్రీకారం చుట్టారు. అప్పటి గుజరాత్ రాజకీయవేత్త, రచయిత కేఎం మున్షీ అసలు దేశభక్తి ఏమిటని అరబిందో ఘోష్‌ను ప్రశ్నిస్తారు.

అంతర్జాతీయ మాతృ దినోత్సవం 🤰🤱 #MothersDay #InternationalMothersDay

ఏటా మే రెండో ఆదివారం నిర్వహిస్తున్న ప్రపంచ మాతృదినోత్సవానికి సుదీర్ఘ చరిత్ర, నేపథ్యం ఉంది. గ్రీస్‌లో ‘రియా’ అనే దేవతను ‘మదర్‌ ఆఫ్‌ గాడ్స్‌’గా భావించి ఏడాదికోసారి నివాళి అర్పించేవారు.
#motherhood Image
17వ శతాబ్దంలో ఇంగ్లాండ్‌లో తల్లులకు గౌరవంగా ‘మదరింగ్‌ సండే’ పేరిట ఉత్సవాన్ని జరిపేవారు. ‘జూలియవర్డ్‌ హోవే’ అనే మహిళ అమెరికాలో 1872లో తొలిసారిగా ప్రపంచ శాంతికోసం మదర్స్‌డే నిర్వహించాలని ప్రతిపాదించింది.
అన్న మేరీ జర్విస్‌ అనే మహిళ ‘మదర్స్‌ ఫ్రెండ్‌షిప్‌ డే’ జరిపించేందుకు ఎంతో కృషిచేసింది. ఆమె 1905 మే 9న మృతిచెందగా, ఆమె కుమార్తె మిస్‌ జెర్విస్‌ మాతృదినోత్సవం కోసం విస్తృతంగా ప్రచారం చేసింది. ఇలా 1911 నాటికి అమెరికాలోని అన్ని రాష్ట్రాల్లో మాతృదినోత్సవం జరుపడం మొదలైంది.

A conversation between 2 twins while they are in the womb of their mother. Pretty profound. Got it in a mail. #MOTHER #motherhood #conversation #mondaythoughts #MondayMotivation

In a mother’s womb were two babies..._
One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?”

The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”
“Nonsense,” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?” The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here.

It isn't easy to go through monthly menstruation cycle for years just to be a mother and deliver kids.

It is not easy to let Woman's body adapt to the changes, to accommodate a baby inside Her body, to nourish it, to care for it.
It is not easy to undergo emotional upheavals and hormonal imbalance during pregnancy, it is not easy to throw up or feel nauseated all the time. It is not easy to walk carefully, minding each step with a baby inside Her.

It is not easy to be go to doctor for regular check ups
And regular sonographies

It is not easy to swallow medicines, and keep up with good nutrition and change her routine and herself for the baby .

It is painful process , the labour pains are no jokes either. To get cut open with a horizontal C section or to push the baby

#Parenting with #antivax parents: a thread.
When I was young, my antivax mom always told me that I would have to do my own research about #vaccines. When I grew up & my research led me to get myself vaccinated, she was upset.
The early conversations with my mom about my decision to get #vaxxed were difficult & emotional for us both. My mom felt like I was rejecting her. I felt betrayed.
Getting #vaccinated as an adult is an annoying & embarrassing process. I was ashamed to explain to doctors why I needed vaccines I should have gotten in childhood. I had to take time off work to get multiple doses of certain vaccines.

This arrived today. The book is an attempt to present a historically-embedded account of western childhood and how the co-constitutive logics of capital and motherhood have shaped its modern understanding. @VSLIIMA

"Situated at the confluence of children's nature and childhood's nurture, mothers are those who most often held personally responsible for navigating the dense undergrowth of competing and confusing narratives and expectations of childhood." #childhood
"Three elements- childhood's pliability, maternal accountability for children and children's subjecthood- entangle and tussle with one another in a variety of ways to produce a 'moral architecture' of childhood."

#motherhood is cradle to ontogeny,enduring nature's ingenuity to propagate evolving distinctive life form with universal precision to genetic hierarchical dominance
Her subtlety to creation,resilience,tenacity & evolution no modern innovation can match efficiently & benevolently
prior to embark'g on sacrosanct lifelong parenthood both must accept basic premise to embracing vow to respect, share-care & survive mutual harmony & hardships
Reciprocate with emotional maturity & integrity to family, making life pursuit meaningful & respect gender equality1/24
initiation is a surprising uncertainty to physical & psychological transform'n for the greater good,expecting to get over unscathed through whole process ASAP
Concerned partner need to support & empathise with her to endure & empower her during tiredness & morning sickness 2.

It stings when I see "inclusive" things like this leave out #birthmothers.

As #parents you hope to make the choice that's best for your #child. Some of us had to come to the hard truth that we were not what was best for our child or children. #biomom #birthmother #MothersDay
Making that agonizing decision does not take away the fact that we carried our little ones for nine months and gave #birth to them. It does not negate the excruciating #pain of walking away. It doesn't make it any easier. #biomom #birthmother #MothersDay
Our #motherhood is just as valid & I truly wish that people understood that. I didn't just give my baby away. I gave her the best life I could.

So here's to all the birthmothers out there. I see you. I know you. I wish you a #happymothersday.

My eldest son gave his first Friday sermon and led his first Friday prayer last week & I am shamelessly gonna take all the credit😊.
Though I know we merely plant the seeds. Allah is the One who makes them grow & blossom.
Alhamdulillah. Thumma Alhamdulillah.
One of the blessings of #motherhood & #fatherhood is...seeing the the seeds you planted in their childhood bring forth fruit. And why should you not beam with joy when you see them? You invested years of your life, hours of your time nurturing that seed.
We don’t need to lead prayers to be empowered women...we’re in the business of raising Imams! Our influence is there in every thought that crosses their mind and that they convey to their congregations.
