Whatever Floats Your Boat…Perspectives on Motherhood documentary can now be viewed on-line
Produced by Pink Gazelle Productions in 2005, Whatever Floats Your Boat…Perspectives on Motherhood is a personal exploration of the ‘to be or not to be…a mom?’ question.
Created for women, about women, by women, Whatever Floats Your Boat is suitable for viewers interested in discussing the challenges and responsibilities associated with motherhood – and is of particular interest to women struggling with the motherhood-decision or dealing with the loss of choice. This documentary is an excellent discussion-generating tool.
“We all agreed that in today’s age, young people in particular need to know they have a choice regarding having children. We all know people who have them for the wrong reasons and it doesn’t end up solving anything…as well as being completely unfair to the child.” – T.C. WFYB viewer

As well, in early 2012, we will be starting a blog-series, called “Mothering Matters” that will explore a variety of topics, such as the decision of whether or not to have children, infertility, adoption, post-partum depression, mothering in the broader/community perspective, raising kids in today’s world, being a single parent, dealing with our own mothers…and everything in between!
