Ouders mogen best een eigen gevoel gebruiken

What is being a young mom? I hear and speak to people who definitely think a mom should be at a certain age, but I remember being a mom for the first time when I turned 33. This was not my choice nor was it my husband’s.
Sometimes we think planning to be pregnant is a special goal yet we might not even know who plans our future.
Yes for a Zimbabwean girl I was late, just the same as my age group right now will be asking “‘so when did you graduate? when did get your driver’s licence and when was your first child?”
Such cliche questions are difficult to answer when your first 22 years of your life was in Zimbabwe and then the second 20 years of your life is in Europe.
I had to start afresh with a lot of things. At that moment my age group in Zimbabwe was moving on. At that moment my age group in Europe was moving on.
May I be proud to tell you that if I look back I feel richer than ever?
Having lived in a resorted village in Zimbabwe, having lived in what they call high density surburb and lived in what they call low density surburb and now in Netherlands in defferent areas as well make me who I am now. I have seen it all.

Muchaheta was now living in the Netherlands, far away from home and her extended family. Perhaps it was the distance or the time away from her roots that led her down a path to reconciling her traditionally African approach to child rearing with the new modern European scientifically tested advice she was consistently receiving. In doing so she began to craft out a unique path for herself and her growing family.
