This is Anna

My name is Anna Araba Akyerè and I’m 28 years old, from The Netherlands. I have a 19 month old son, named Amari.

During the pregnancy, my boyfriend didn’t want to know the gender of our baby but I did, so after finding out, I kept it to myself all the way until Amari was born.

Motherhood has been hugely fulfilling for me. I feel privileged to give and receive unconditional love and I feel so lucky to experience all of Amari’s adventures, while right by his side.

Mothering Amari comes so naturally to me but looking after myself regularly enough is something I find really challenging. I know I need to work on that because I need to be at my best, in order to be there from my son. He is depending on me.
