I was interviewed by the wonderful site for South Asian-Canadian moms, Masala Mommas. It was my first interview as a new mom and I could not have been more excited to share and reflect on what I have learned as a proud new mom to my baby girl, Ava Aisha Pahlevani.
Before I got pregnant, I spent a lot of time speaking to and writing about motherhood and new moms. I interviewed my friends who were moms on how they juggle all their different roles.
Being honest and trying to gage a realistic expectation of motherhood helped prepare me for what was to come a lot. But what I found once I became a new mom was that physically it was impossible to be the woman society expects you to be when you have a baby. My conclusion? Complain more and ask for help!
Check out my interview for Masala Mommas and tell me, what do you think is the hardest part of being a working mom?

Just happened to stumble onto your site yesterday and couldn’t stop reading your posts. I am a Bangladeshi born around your age residing in the US; so that might be one of the main reasons I felt especially connected to most of your writings. Not only are your writing pieces brilliant, it’s incredible to see your courageous nature to speak up on important women’s issues; and I love how you are proud of your heritage and blend that into your communication pieces in such a lovely way. I must admit that I’ve always felt a bit disconnected with Bangladesh and issues there; and think that many people (including myself) often just become numb to things going on “over there” (back home/South Asian region, etc) and don’t try to speak up and/or do anything about it. But coming across your site has been quite inspiring and thought provoking. I feel proud to know that there are courageous women like yourself working to make a difference in such a creative way; bringing about much needed awareness on women’s issues.
Keep up the excellent work and all the best!!
