You've become a mum...…..and now has come the time that you are planning to return to work....that feeling in the bottom of your stomach... I get you!
Most of us don't realise the massive impact becoming a mum is going to have on us. I remember being on maternity leave having planned to return full time back to work. Twelve months later my feelings on returning to this role radically changed and I was so emotional! Do you relate with any of these thoughts?
How am I going to cope with everything at home and at work?
Worried about being separated from your baby?
Am I going to miss out on things like their first steps, their first word?
I was riddled with guilt for leaving my baby, for wanting some adult conversation, for wanting to earn some money, for not being there for my sons every need.
How were we going to pay the extortionate childcare costs, what should I choose nursery Vs childminder?
What was my employer going to be like when I needed time off for poorly baby? Would they let me work more flexibly?
Are other people going to judge me for wanting to return to work? I felt like people thought I "should" be at home.
In a nutshell I felt overwhelmed...
What do you do now?
This is the point where it's so easy to get stuck.
- Stuck because it's "convenient"
- Stuck because you're comfortable there
- Stuck because you don't know what else to do?
- Stuck because your salary is good and you don't want to "start again"
- Stuck because you're worried you won't get the flexibility you need somewhere else.
Problem is...…. ultimately you're not happy.
