In Aztec culture, mothers preparing for childbirth were considered as courageous and
formidable as warriors going into battle, said Belinda Campos, an associate professor
in the Department of Chicano/Latino Studies at the University of California, Irvine.
… “There’s a saying, ‘madre solo hay una,” or “mother, there is only one,” Campos

pay them back. They gave you life.”
