When Marta and her husband decided to move to Japan, little did they know that they would also be starting a family. And while becoming a mother can be challenging for anyone, for Marta it was especially difficult. She had to learn how to navigate the Japanese healthcare system, deal with cultural differences, and learn new parenting skills all while adapting to life in a new country.

In this episode, she shares her experiences and offers advice to other mothers who may find themselves in a similar situation.

Marta is originally from Portugal. She lived in Spain, London, and now Japan. She also traveled the world as a flight attendant. Her first experience abroad was through a scholarship program called Erasmus. After that experience, she knew that her life was going to be away from Portugal.
The exposure to many different cultures was eye-opening. So years later, Marta managed to move to England and found a job thanks to her background in aviation.
In London, Marta met her husband who is from Belarus.
When her husband's visa was about to expire, he had the opportunity to move to Japan. To do so the two had to get married, and they only had 3 days to do it.
