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: Hanny, 34
Baby: Cormac, 17 months
How did you end up doing gentle parenting?
It is just the way that makes the most sense to me.
What does being a woke mama mean to you?
Being aware of the world that my multi racial son lives in and guiding him through it.
Most awesome moment so far?
Breastfeeding in public. I was so shy and scared at first. In Asian society it is very stigmatized, so it was great to overcome it.
Biggest struggle so far? How do you cope with stressful moments?
Not getting enough asleep. I just take lots of deep breaths, and know that everything will pass. That is how I deal with the stress.
Any advice you would give to new mums?
Be patient. Everything has its adjustment period.
What’s on your soundtrack to your first year of being a Woke Mama?
Paul Simon and Neutral Milk Hotel.
