The Canadian Council of Natural Mothers honours using the terms, mother, mothers and motherhood as natural representations of ourselves and other mothers who have lost children to adoption. These natural terms are often denied to us by others in the loss of our babies and children to adoption. We recognize that some mothers choose to use labels of differentiation such as life mother, first mother, birth mother or birthmother, and birth parents. Also, some choose to use labels of differentiation for other natural relatives, such as birth father, natural father, birth son, birth daughter, and birth siblings.
