Name & age: Kelly, 37
Baby: Panda 7 months
What does being a woke mama mean to you?
It means be connected to my baby, nature and my intuition.
Using my instincts and exploring natural methods of parenting consciously, with my heart and soul.
What made you choose gentle parenting? And what is your favourite aspect of it?
It just resonates with me and feels right ! It makes sense.
My favourite aspect is following nature and letting it do its thing. We were created perfectly with motherhood wonderfully designed — we have all our babies need. So going with nature and not fighting against it.
Most awesome moment so far?
The first smile and laugh. The fact every morning Panda looks up at me with a huge smile …and he is the only person who loves my singing voice.
Biggest struggle so far? How do you cope with stressful moments?
Me time! And mum guilt. I breath deeply and play some music.
Changing my energy usually changes my baby’s too. Switch the vibe.
If I need a cry I do that too, or read my positive affirmations and my placenta happy pills help lol
Any advice you would give to new mums?
Be kind to yourself. It’s hard raising a tiny human. Let the house work etc wait. It’s about you and baby. Don’t be ashamed to ask for help.
What’s on your soundtrack to your first year of being a Woke Mama?

Last word: So much love to all you inspiring goddesses raising the future rainbow warriors of our future!!
