All of the elements of the MummaBabySam logo are part of a woman’s transition to motherhood.
Since working as a postnatal doula, I have recognised how important all these things are.
Many of us understand the symbolism of the butterfly, of growth and new beginnings, but there is also a power in the transformation they undergo, signifying rebirth, evolvement, hope and bravery. It is a testament to the magic and amazing things we can do and become after a time of rest and confinement in a safe space, and the beauty and majesty of what recuperation can create.
The triangle is a powerful and prominent shape in so many cultures. It has been known to represent the three elements that are so often used in cultural teachings such as;
mind body & spirit,
Mental, physical & emotional
Birth, growth & death
Past, present & future
Mother, father & child.
The base of the triangle represents a strong foundation, a launch into new challenges and as a mother of one, it has always been a poignant reminder for me, of the power of three.
The hand itself is a huge symbol of care, trust, love and support. Of companionship, friendship and community and these are all a vital part of my doula work.
A hand to hold and a hand to hold space for every mother.
