I am a South African and new immigrant to New Zealand. I am also a mother, certified WOMBS Post Partum Doula and Innate Traditions Post Partum Care Provider. I was drawn to the service of new mothers after my experience of Matrescence and the diagnosis of a Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder. As a freelance writer and content creator, I started a community on Instagram called The New Normal as a way to connect with mothers who are struggling with this life-changing right of passage. Aside from running talks, developing ante-natal workshops aimed at the emotional and psychological landscape of new parenthood, I’m incredibly passionate about using social media and the digital realm to galvanize community and to spread consciousness. This came off the back of Covid 19 and the dire need of new mothers needing support. As the world emerges a-new from this pandemic, my goal is to pick up again one-on-one post partum planning sessions and care, organizing talks, workshops and classes and augmenting this with digital support and informative content.
