I’m so excited to kick off the New Year with some more Inspiring Baby Mamas for you!
If you know a young Mummy who is inspirational whether it be because she’s Studying (like a boss), Working or running her own business (like a boss) or just being an all round rad, kick ass Mama defying negative stereotypes (like a boss) then send her this way. She may even be YOU.
How old were you when you became a first time Mum?
What challenges do you face as a young mother?
Stereotypes, fear of the unknown, an unfinished degree and falling pregnant whilst trying to study, saying goodbye to life as I knew it before and entering motherhood.
Have you returned to study, work or started up a business around parenting?
I studied throughout pregnancy until baby brain kicked in and made be stop and focus on myself- it was an extremely hard decision as I hate feeling like I’m taking a few steps back! I now have 1 year left of my degree and want to pick it back up again when my son is a bit older so I don’t miss out on learning and getting to know him in these first initial months.
Looking back on your parenting journey, would you change anything?
Absolutely not! I love my son and motherhood is so much more amazing than I could have imagined. I learnt to stop trying to control everything and to just go with the flow and it has worked out really well.
What is your advice to other young mothers out there?
Let life lead you and embrace it! Stop Worrying and trying to control everything because life is so much better when you’re open for change. Ask for advice and don’t feel like a failure.
Thanks so much for sharing your story Cassie!
I look forward to following your journey on your blog and social media platforms x
