Now some infant adoption businesses and adoption promoters are suggesting that people should honor women as "birthmothers" on "Birthmother's Day" - the day before Mother's Day - rather than acknowledging them as mothers on Mother's Day.
Mothers and their babies are human beings. Women are not baby-production equipment. The members of OriginsUSA reject the dehumanizing label "birthmother" that is utilized by the adoption industry and insist on the respectful terms "mother" or "natural mother."
The Mother-and-Child relationship is like no other. A baby bonds with her mother in the womb. A baby looks to her mother for security and no other caregiver - not even the baby 's father - can replace her. Many hospitals now recognize the importance of keeping newborns with their mothers, rather than separating them. Experts emphasize the benefits to a baby that come from nursing and her own mother 's milk, designed for her.
Yet with all that is known about the importance of a baby 's mother to her well-being, some vulnerable and naÃ¯ve mothers are still being led to believe that their infant sons and daughters will be better off with someone else. Even a dog breeder knows better than to separate puppies from their mother before they are sufficiently mature.
OriginsUSA is an organization of mothers and other family members separated by adoption - people who are opposed to discrimination against single parent families.
