Good on you for wanting to be open with your mother, and for being pro-active about getting safe sex!
How you approach this depends a lot on you and your relationship with your mother. Do you two usually communicate pretty well? If so, I suggest just finding a moment where you're both in a good mood and have some time to chat, and bringing it up with her.
If you're not so great at expressing yourself or are afraid you'll feel awkward or embarrassed, you can also try writing a letter and giving it to your mother.
