It’s been and is an ongoing journey of self-reflection, introspection, boundary testing, and identity transformation. Recently, lots of self doubts, lack of self/confidence as a parent, particularly when being more than 24h alone with the baby.
It takes a village to raise a child. This phrase becomes extra relevant, when one’s partner is away. It’s such a great feeling of liberation to breathe and take a quick swim, nap, spend a lunch alone because a friend takes your baby for just a couple of mins or hours. I’ve personally done so from the very beginning and am privileged to have an amazing team of my two praxis colleagues, who are always there to help. If we as parents get our needs met, we’re able to attend and dedicate our time fully to our children.
