Kavita Trevena – Engagement Manager, Bromley Healthcare

Kavita recently joined Bromley Healthcare as their Engagement Manager.

Kavita Trevena is also known throughout the community as The Unlikely Mummy – When Kavita gave birth to her first child in 2018, on top of the usual struggles of a first-time parent, she was taken aback by many of the issues that don’t get talked about, such as worries and guilt based on the expectations of society and unrealistic portrayals of parenthood on social media, as well as the challenges faced by being a working mother.

She realised nobody was speaking out about mental health issues mums face so she started a blog, ‘The Unlikely Mummy’, bravely sharing her own experiences and attempting to help others in the same situation. Since then, she has won several awards, has appeared on BBC Woman’s Hour and Channel 5 news, written two mindfulness guides (‘I Am Me’ and ‘The Kindness Journal’) and a children’s book to highlight parents with mental health struggles (‘Why is Mummy sad?’), featured on several podcasts sharing her journey and giving insight into parenting, set up parent’s support groups and organised three Community marketplace event to support parents in her community.  Kavita strives to nurture a support network for parents both in her community and online via her website, www.theunlikelymummy.co.uk
