The Story of

#BringBackGentle is an initiative by DOY to help mothers everywhere rediscover their gentle and beautiful selves. We understand that being a MOM is not an easy job, but it is the most important one. Your little one is watching everything you do and say, and has begun to reflect your behaviour.

Let them reflect the best of you. Let them reflect the GENTLE you!

I’m always getting advice from family and friends on how to raise my own children. I wish I could tell them to just back off sometimes. Even though I appreciate their advice, I know what’s best for my kids.

It’s so irritating when my mother-in-law comes over and tells me how to run my house! Seriously annoying!

I’m always taking care of everyone around me! I wish people asked me how I was feeling, for a change.

I’m really happy that I went back to work a year after my delivery. I still spend a lot of quality time with my baby and have a job that I love.

No one ever listens to Mummy!!
