What Mother’s Day Means to Me: An Interview With Venus et Fleur® Co-Founder, Seema Bansal Chadha
Embarking on the path to motherhood is a voyage brimming with the anticipation of welcoming a new life into the world. From the moment you cradle your newborn in your arms, you are filled with a depth of love you never knew existed. As the years pass, parenthood continues to evolve, presenting new challenges and rewards. Through the sleepless nights, first steps, and first words, motherhood is a beautiful and selfless journey. Being a parent is a life-changing experience that will enrich your life in countless ways, both as a new mother and throughout the years.
Seema Bansal Chadha, Venus et Fleur® co-founder, celebrates her first Mother’s Day this year. She shares her thoughts on embracing motherhood while juggling the responsibilities of being a devoted wife and dedicated entrepreneur.
What have you learned about yourself since becoming a mother?
“I've learned I have more resilience and strength than I realized. I've also learned that I am a natural nurturer. I was aware of my caring nature before becoming a mother, but the responsibility of nurturing my child has amplified my need to provide love, attention, and care to ensure they feel supported and cherished. I’ve discovered my inner strength and resiliency and learned that I can excel in multiple roles, including being an amazing mom and devoted wife, while also achieving my personal goals.”
How has motherhood positively impacted your life?
“Motherhood has taught me to be more childlike, which is a beautiful aspect of becoming a parent. You gain the ability to see life through their perspective and want what is best for them. It's opened my heart a lot more, and I just love being a mom to Windsor.”
How do you practice self-care amid the busy lifestyle of being a mom and entrepreneur?
“I enjoy meditating using apps like the Calm app. I also love to take baths and make a moment for a ritual. I love our new VEF Goddess Bath Gift Basket because all of those products are things I like to use when I’m trying to wind down. I think it's nice to enjoy a glass of wine, watch a movie, or work out. There are so many ways to practice self-care. Being a mom and running a company is challenging, and it's really important to renew your energy to be the best at both.”
How would you like to be celebrated as a mom this Mother’s Day?
“I would like to be celebrated this Mother’s Day with my family and with my child. Simply being together, eating good food, listening to great music, and creating memories. It can be so simple. Of course, I think it’s important that there's the element of a handwritten card from my husband and one of our Fleur Frames or one of our mixed floral arrangements. I think that would be a really nice gift.”
What part of motherhood are you most grateful for?
“I’m most grateful that I now have my son Windsor, I'm so in love. He’s is the best part of my life. I am also grateful to my family and team, who support me through this journey. It just shows that women really can do anything.”
