Tips for New Working Moms

After returning to work from maternity leave, many new mothers will start to worry about their company's "mommy track", or the work-life balance your company gives working mothers. Balancing your home life with the rigors of a pressure-packed work environment is not for everyone and talking to other working moms in the company will provide a good idea of what the future will hold.

If the company you currently work at seems too demanding and would take away from what you need to do at home, perhaps a more easy going employer and a relaxed working environment will give you what you need to provide for your family while having the time and energy to be a great mom at home.

Having previously worked in the financial education industry, I can certainly agree with the author’s suggestion that sometimes you need to find a different employer (or industry) that is more supportive of work-life balance and women in general.

How sad, in this day and age, that not all employers allow a flexible working environment that encourages women returning to work after child birth.

Having a Au Pair (18 -26 year old nanny, from other countries) can be a wonderful experience. It provides flexibility around your schedule, and it is affordable.

how sad, that not all the mothers have an option to find nannies (cannot afford) or have to look for a new industry to work in. Do you not see the unemployment rate? Please, as if we have a choice.

I was very concerned about the care of my kids and I really was never happy with the people until I found Ana at the Bronx child care center. She really knows how to provide children care. There is so much love involve in everything she does for children that in my opinion there are no others like her. I strongly recommend Ana to anyone who truly cares for their kids.

I was really stressed out at the prospect of going back to work without a relative or someone I knew who I could hire to babysit for my daughter, but I actually found a great sitter through Care.com. They let me run multiple background checks, conduct interviews and search through references from other people who had hired them (I’m a little paranoid) and I found a college student Alyssa who has been great!

As a working mom, it’s hard to find a center who is willing to watch my son. I researched child care centers in my area. Most of the facilities will let you tour the center.
