Candice tells Mother&Baby the seven things she's learned since becoming a mum...
7) We need diversity in motherhood
My dad, always used to say to me, ‘Candice, I’m not here for the complaining – you’ve told me what’s wrong, how are you going to fix it?’
So, tired of always being fed a singular story about motherhood despite the enormous spectrum of realities, I co-founded the campaign Make Motherhood Diverse
. Diversity is about so much more than skin colour. For us it means everyone’s story being told and treated with respect. We believe that every mother should be on equal footing because we’re all just trying to do well by our children.
