Rachel Maksimovic‘s 4 year old son Lenny came into the world pretty unexpectedly when she was living abroad in Bali, and with someone she had only been seeing for a few months. Given the cultural differences between them and some other challenges they faced once she fell pregnant, Rachel moved back home to raise Lenny on her own.
As any single parent would know, there are some extremely tough moments that come with it, and in today’s episode Rachel opens up about the mental and financial load that single parenting brings, her coping strategies and what she does when she needs to tap out for a moment, and what she finds helpful when friends and family offer support.
