Sometimes family life goes at such a pace that its hard to slow down and let our partner, family, friends, and/or support network know just how much we appreciate them.  The 40 Days of Gratitude is an Appreciation Initiative launched by Birth Roots to start an oxytocin surge in our community between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

Who makes you laugh? Who saved the day? Who is a great listener? Who is a fairy godparent to your child?
Who said just the right thing at the right time? Who shares diaper duty with you?

Whether one moment or many moments, a little thing or a big deal, we want to help you let these people just how much you appreciate them.

With your $20 gift to Birth Roots, a beautiful card with the images below will be sent to the person of your choice to let them know you have named them as an honoree in the 40 Days of Gratitude AND their name will be added to a leaf on the family tree at Birth Roots.

And even if you can’t officially participate in the 40 Days of Gratitude Campaign, we encourage you to follow along on our Facebook Event page for prompts and inspirations about who and how to thank the special people in your world.

The Gift of -ISH

The Gift of -ISH

Before I became a parent, I was a “if I’m not 5 minutes early, I’m late” kind of person. I never really minded if other people ran a little late, but it always stressed me out! After becoming a parent, it was a really difficult transition for me when my exit from the...

While Waiting…

A dear friend is in the waiting window – open to pregnancy and parenting and all that comes with it, but not yet pregnant. This brings me back to a difficult time in my life when I was waiting…and waiting…and waiting, too. My journey to pregnancy and parenting was...
