My last job as a community pharmacist before becoming a full-time mother, was five years in Sydney’s vibrant Chinatown! It was one of the most interesting periods of my pharmacy career – a wonderful mix of both Australian and Chinese culture.
I received my first understanding of Traditional Chinese Medicine and thanks to my Chinese staff who were also mothers, something about the way they raised their children.
My advice to all those women who were keen to embrace Western customs such as formula feeding was – don’t throw out the baby with the bath water. Consider what must change as the world changes, but remember that many parenting practices have evolved successfully over generations.
I trust Flurishh will show you the way to blend the old with the new!
