In regards to Childcare - not only must you contemplate balancing the study load, but also the commitment of COC (follow throughs). I would imagine, unless you have a mum/relative/friend who can look after kids, they would need to be in fulltime care???? I would say (not that I am speaking from experience) that the women that you do COC with, they can schedule antenatal appointments whenever suits them. And needless to say they won't have their bub on the days your kids are in care.......???
Just food for thought.
