It is not easy being a mom. On the contrary, it takes a lot of work and patience to be a good one. For both stay-at-home and working moms, having to juggle multiple responsibilities and knowing that your child’s life highly depends on you can be exhausting. Sometimes, moms need to make personal adjustments too just to cope with such situation. And being a mom myself, I know for a fact that we put our little one’s needs before our own. That’s where things get a bit overwhelming.

But we should not stop caring for ourselves because it also affects our ability to care for our children. “I am a mom of four and as far as I remember, I spent most of my adulthood caring for my children,” shares Tina, a 43-year-old mom. “I start my day at 5:00am, fixing my kids’ baon, and preparing them for school. Once they leave the house, I go on with my usual routine- clean the house, do the laundry, check their assignments, prepare dinner, wash the dishes, and then put them to bed. Sometimes my husband jokes that I don’t time for him anymore as I am too focused on being a good mom! But funnily though, that is true. We don’t get to spend quality time anymore,” she quips. “Don’t get me wrong, but I love being a mom because it is really fulfilling. It’s just that by being too focused on being a good mom, I have neglected other important things as well” she adds.

Rose, a 45-year-old working mom of 3, shares the same dilemma as Tina. “I think have mastered the art of juggling!” she jokes. “But on a serious note, nothing feels more awful than the mom guilt. When I am at work, I keep on saying to myself that I am doing so good at my job, but am I being a great mom as well? Sure, my husband and I can provide all of our kids’ needs, but is that enough? Do my kids know I love them? Do I spend enough quality time with them? Am I giving them attention? The pressure of being a good mom is just too much that I forget to look after myself too. I am too busy working and caring for my children that I had to put my needs aside. And honestly, that doesn’t feel ok,” she says.

“I began contemplating and realized that with all the years that I have dedicated as a mom, it’s about time to think of myself now. With all the myriad of responsibilities that I have juggled and successfully carried out, I feel empowered. So empowered that I am ready to choose what’s best for me, aside from being a mom, of course” Tina says.

“It is not selfish to take care of yourself!” affirms Tina. “That’s why I made a choice to try something new that I know would make me feel better about myself. After all, I know I truly deserve this.” Rose adds, “I totally agree with Tina! You can’t be a good mom if you don’t do yourself good. After providing the needs of my children, it’s about time that I give importance to myself too. It’s time to work on my best self ever because I deserve it!”

For mommies Tina and Rose, trying SvelT’i’s Femilift has given them a brand-new confidence in themselves. Femilift is a non-invasive laser treatment that is 100% safe and is being used globally. It only takes 30 minutes for the procedure to be done. Femilift is for women who want to have improvement on stress urinary incontinence. It also enhances lubrication because as women age, they experience dryness, and it becomes painful during sexual intercourse. For others, it is for tightening because during normal childbirth delivery, the vagina never comes back to its pre-pregnant state. While for other women, it is for better sexual pleasure.

“Now, I feel much better about myself and so does my husband! Thanks to SvelT’i, treatments are now available for women who are facing the same condition as mine and help them restore their confidence,” shares Tina. “Now that I feel better about myself, there is no amount of work or mommy responsibilities that I can’t do. I know that I am in my best self ever, and I know I’ve got this!” muses Rose.

For all the work that moms do, they deserve to be appreciated not only during Mother’s Day, but every day of the year. Let them know they are loved and appreciated. Visit SvelT’i now, and give your moms a treat they deserve!

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
