During our journey we’ve been lucky enough to raise awareness within the media on chronic conditions, in particular, Endometriosis, the disease that has most affected our lives.
The first step we took in sharing our journey was with Practical Parenting Magazine in a very personal pregnancy story where we almost lost our son. Read more here:
Our first TV interview was a very daunting experience sharing raw and personal details of our battle with Endometriosis and IVF struggles. The response we received as a result was incredible and was one of the reasons behind Whoa Mumma, we realised just how much our story and experience resonated with others and how much we could do to help and inspire others going through a difficult journey with chronic illness and pain.
Watch our story on local current affair show Today Tonight here featuring one of Adelaide’s best Endometriosis Excision Surgeons:
In 2017 we were interviewed by our local newspaper on Endometriosis and a campaign my husband created called Yellow Beard. He dyed his glorious beard bright yellow to attend a major trade show interstate to raise money and awareness for the disease.
Teena’s views and story were included in a piece for news.com.au about the 2018 changes to codeine availability and the need to get a prescription for these once over the counter medications. You can find out more about this story by clicking on the link below.

An unconventional path to parenthood
Thanks to MyDeal.com.au for sharing our advice on debunking parenting myths. We had the opportunity to share our advice on what we think needs de-bunking. Of course we talked about the myth that you can’t be a good parent if you have a chronic illness and how that couldn’t be further from the truth for most parents with chronic illness or pain.
Make sure you check out their site for loads of other great blogs, stories and advice from everything from fashion, health and fitness, lifetstyle and heaps more.
We are constantly preaching the importance of self-care here at Whoa Mumma so when MyDeal.com.au asked our advice on the topic we jumped at the opportunity to contribute. To read this piece called ‘5 Ways Mums Can Practice Self-Care’ click on the link below.
We are very excited to be working with The Mighty and contributing articles to share with their readers, our tips for managing chronic illness was picked up by them and hopefully helps lots of people.
