As we kick off Women's Month we are talking about Single Mums. I am a single mum. my mother was a single mum. I know so many people around me who found themselves being single mums most often unintentionally.
A few years ago it was frowned upon and spoken about in hushed voices. Today there are women who choose to be single mums. However, it came about I think we still do not talk about it enough.
Today I explore the topic with Ngombo and touch a little on post partum depression.

Hi my name is Ngombo aka The Afro Doula. I am a Zambian born woman, a Mother, a daughter, a sister & a wife. I love wild swimming, adventure, sisterhood, preparing and eating delicious food, margarita cocktails, creativity, raving in the house & feeling alive! I am a multifaceted, iridescent being with many layers & many gifts to share! I was called to become a Doula back in 2019 as I was healing from 2 long years of postpartum depression. I knew then that in order for me to thrive the most important thing was to keep a remembrance activated within myself around how incredibly important, powerful and sacred the carrying, birthing, nourishing and nurturing of new life truly is. I also knew then, that the darkness I'd been through could be alchemised into something magical & so I made it my business to help reignite this flame of remembrance in other Mums who were finding Motherhood difficult.
