Bonding with your children at a high level. It was already a bit known that I am a primeval mother, but my children do have a primeval father. Really, he is not going to walk beside his shoes, because he really does it with love just like all other fathers, but with extra, that extra to give. I appreciate that and it adds more to our love. My physiotherapist says that I am a primeval mother, she wants me to let go of some things so that I can recover. Yes this is possible, because letting go is when you know the children are in good hands. This does not mean that it should all have to be my way, but I, for example, do not like it when I hear a baby cry when I know that sometimes it is not necessary. There is always a reason why a baby is crying. I usually jump right off my seat to see what could be going on. Fortunately my husband is accommodating when it comes to our family, handy, especially when it comes to upbringing. He has had his own opinion about baby carrying, but he has been participating for 7 years and is now very pleased that he even convinced people to try this too. With pelvic instability, I have to learn to let go while retaining being a primal mother. My first two children were breastfed for 3 years. We really hope that our third can also get for a long period of time. This takes an enormous amount of energy and strength. With pelvic instability you are often a little less mobile than expected. Yet you do want to undertake certain activities with your children as a primal mother. What I regularly do with them is bake cake. Last week I was tired after being with 3 children all day. My husband came home and he cooked, he asked me if I wanted a bath and I agreed. In the bath I had every confidence that everything was going well, just like every other day when I have to get away from work and he stays at home with the children. He often also works at home and keeps an eye on the children while I am away or at work.

Working and carrying your baby is fine, and my husband is inclined to grab and carry the baby so that he can continue. Some will think, why say such a thing? As an African girl I remember that my father was often at work and aunts came to help my mother. My father did not have to worry about the children. With no one at all to help us on a regular basis, we need to find ways to give our children full attention while we can do our work. My need to give this to more fathers is also great. enough families are falling apart, sometimes for very minor reasons

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.
