Want to know WTF a Woke Mama is? Each week, we’re introducing awesome women who are making the world a kinder place, one happy baby at a time.
Name & age: Tierian, 19
Baby: Rian, but I’m still pregnant!
What does being a woke mama mean to you?
Being able to adjust and learn along with your child and always keeping an open mind to everything they do.
But I honestly don’t know what kind of parent I will be yet.
Most awesome moment so far?
Finding out she was a girl.
Biggest struggle so far?
High irritability and mood swings. My boyfriend (Rian’s father) and family have been a very strong support system for me. I’m grateful to have them because I know a lot of young moms don’t get that.
How will you juggle work with gentle parenting?
Being that there will be two parents and a multitude of grandparents (Rian will be the fifth generation on my side on his) me going back to work isn’t really a worry for me, because I will have to support I need to take care of her.
Any advice you would give to new mums?

What’s on your soundtrack to your first year of being a Woke Mama?
Bodak Yellow by Cardi B. It give me confidence and I know i’m going to need a lot of it!
