our story

I had my first baby in early 2012. I was elated, over the moon, excited, nervous, scared... but I definitely wasn't as prepared for it mentally as I thought I was going to be. I imagined having a newborn to what it was like in the movies. A warm snuggly baby sleeping through the night, the ease of breastfeeding, constant showers and perfectly wavy hair with a hint of lip gloss and rosy cheeks. Boy was I in for a rude awakening. If you're a parent you already know what I'm talking about.

I was beyond exhausted, dazed and confused, wondering if what I was doing was right, had no idea what the difference in baby cries meant yet, breastfeeding was toe-curling teeth-gritting painful and wondered to myself if I'd ever shower again. My release was crying, oh and vacuuming. I say vacuuming because it was a nice break from the baby crying (or myself crying), but I survived and had 2 more babies after that.

And that's how Our Anak was born. I wanted a virtual place for mamas and mamas-to-be to land, chill out, hang out, have a fun read, maybe even enjoy a laugh or two, get inspired, share inspiration, but mostly I wanted to build a supportive, non-judgmental community for like minded badass womxn. No ego, and all empathy.
You can sit with us.
