Returning to work as a mom can be hard. While it could provide you with the break from motherhood that you need, you may simultaneously have fears about being apart from your little one, as well as fears about readjusting to the working world. Below is a guide on how to handle the transition effectively.
Who will look after your little one?
It’s possible to juggle some jobs while looking after a baby, however in most cases this won’t be practical. This means finding a babysitter while you’re at work.
You may be able to rely on a partner, a family member or a close friend. This option will save you money and you won’t have to put your trust in strangers. However, this isn’t always possible.
Childminders and daycare facilities could be the best solution. Daycare will usually not be an option until your child is a toddler, however there are some nurseries that allow children as young as won. Do your research to find a childcare service that you trust and that’s within your budget.
