Name & age: Liv, 36

Babies: Lily, 2 and Talulah and Gracie, 7 months

What does being a woke mama mean to you?

An honour.

What made you choose gentle parenting? And what is your favourite aspect of it?

I think it chose me or rather the girls chose it for me! I love sleeping next to them when they need me.

Most awesome moment so far?

Seeing the twins find each other. So magical.

Biggest struggle so far? How do you cope with stressful moments?

Generally the first five months with three small children. The stabbing guilt. The best way of coping ….cry it all out. Deep breaths. You can only do your best and what you are physically capable of. Drink the wine.

How do you juggle work with gentle parenting?

I’m so lucky to be a full time mum. No job I could do would cover our child care cost!

Any advice you would give to new mums?

Listen to your instinct and do what is right for you and your baby. Not what other people advise; take it on board but never lose your motherly instinct.

What’s on your soundtrack to your first year of being a Woke Mama?

Bitch – Meredith brooks ! Covers all basis.
