Celebrity quotes on motherhood: Motherhood is a special, life-changing and even empowering part of a woman’s life. A woman not only conceives a new life but undergoes a major change in life physically, mentally and emotionally. There are pains, breakdowns, pressure, love-hate relationship with work-life and me-time and many more. But the beauty of it is to nurture and raise a new life who is a part of you.

Motherhood can be empowering only if it involves a woman’s choice and equal participation of the father (if he is involved) in the upbringing of the child. Because without choice and support motherhood becomes a burden. So in this article, we bring to you some empowering celebrity quotes on motherhood and the experiences of your favourite celebrities who are also great moms.

It is full of complex emotions of joy, exhaustion, love and worry all mixed together. Your fundamental identity changes overnight. You go from thinking of yourself as primarily an individual, to suddenly being a mother, first and foremost."- Kate Middleton


"You are more connected to your body, to all that is happening. It's mind-boggling when I see the changes. It’s amazing.”- Anushka Sharma

The process takes a huge toll both psychological and physical and should have the backing of an entire community to truly heal.”- Kalki Koechlin
