I didn’t have one but at my brother’s wedding the mom’s did it.  I don’t think there is any reason why your mom can’t be your maid of honor and also light the unity candle.

Your parents and his could light it as part of the unity candle ceremony before you two light the big candle.

Usually the mothers light the first two candles after they’re escorted down the aisle (so before the processional has begun). You can change the order a bit and have the moms do it once they’re all present in the sanctuary (church wedding?).
