It’s a difficult decision for any woman to make.
When is the right time to have a baby? Is there ever a right time to have a baby? Can you have a successful career and have a baby?
To make the right decision you need to be accurately informed, to weigh up the options and look at all of the possibilities. Having a baby is a life changing thing, and it’s also a very expensive one!
I love my job, but it’s very stressful and hard. I work long 12 hour shifts and have practically no time to do anything on the days and nights I’m at work. I’m under no illusions when I return to work in January life will be hard. I will have two full days every four weeks with Hubby and the little man, the rest of the time, the little man will be with just one parent.
In an ideal world I’d love to be able to have a career whilst still being able to spend time with my Hubby and son but I won’t know whether that will work until I return to work in January.
Our little man wasn’t planned, so we didn’t sit down and make a decision to have a baby, I honestly think if we’d had too, we’d have never got round too it, work, life and money would have always got in the way.
