Name & age: Mrashi (Mash), 30
Kids: Maya, 3 and Mariya, 7 months
What does being a woke mama mean to you?
Being aware of your rights as a mama, especially with regards to breastfeeding such as accessibility to areas, as well as building instinct and confidence in what you’re doing!
Most awesome moment so far?
My 3 year old can spell “Mama” and has been talking like a little adult for about a year now! Mariya is only 7 months but is already pulling herself up..
Biggest struggle so far? How do you cope with stressful moments?
The biggest struggle has to be balancing the ages of the girls. As they have different needs, it often gets overwhelming.
Any advice you would give to new mums?
Patience: keep calm you got this, no matter what it is.
What is your one bit of advice for mamas on lockdown?
My advice to mums during lockdown is allow yourself to feel how you are feeling at that moment. If you need to get dressed to feel productive do it, if you need to do nothing, do it. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself.
