Hi! I’m Bunny 🐇. I live in New Zealand with my two amazing boys and my incredible partner.
As a woman who has been a mother for her entire adult life, I am on a journey to define my identity and figure out who I am outside of “mum”. Through this journey I discovered that I have postnatal depression and anxiety (which explains a lot!). I like to be very open about my struggle, as it’s one that’s shared with so many other parents – so I don’t know why it isn’t talked about more! I’m also trying to shift the trend of negativity that seems to surround parenthood in social media – because yes, it is hard… But it’s also one of the most incredible, fulfilling, hilarious, exciting, pride-instilling, amazing things you’ll ever do. I personally prefer to focus on that, because for me, it makes the hard parts easier to deal with.
It is so important for us to look after our mental health so that we can love ourselves and our lives, and teach our beautiful little humans to do the same ❤I’m a huge advocate for prioritising self care – looking after ourselves as parents means we are so much more able to nurture and grow our kids into the wonderful people we want them to be.
