Being a new mom is possibly one of the hardest jobs there is. Firstly your body goes through many changes, all of which are unfamiliar and uncomfortable to you.
Secondly, dealing with a little one who's only form of communication is screaming their little lungs out all while you're exhausted from lack of sleep having to wake up every few hours to feed the little one, change a diaper and sometimes even to just check that he/she is okay - it gets rough.
This is why, when a picture of a mom studying while her new baby slept on her chest was shared by IG account, @embebabies and by Briefly.co.za, it quickly went viral, raking up hundreds of comments from people commending the young momma on not allowing anything to stop her from reaching her goals.
The woman who is now a doctor has inspired thousands.
Many Facebookers wished her well while others shared words of encouragement. Here are some of their comments.
