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: Ashleigh – The Constant Wonderer, 31

Baby: Alleppey, 14 months

How did you end up doing gentle parenting?

Guess it can naturally to me, as I didn’t really realise I was a “gentle parent” until recently.

What does being a woke mama mean to you?

I love being part of a community of like minded women.

It’s empowering and validating and parenting can be such a divisive topic.

At least I know there is a place to find advice on challenges I face as a mother, from people who have a balanced outlook on this shit!

Most awesome moment so far?

Travelling around Jamaica for three months with my partner and our babe in tow.

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

Balancing my identity as a mum with my identity as a woman and creative. I practice yoga, I meditate and sometimes I just loose my shit and cry a lot lol.

Any advice you would give to new mums?

Travel!! Travel far and wide with your little one. It gives you perspective and helps make the everyday extraordinary.
