So time to study it is! Is there anyone else with 2 little ones trying to study... Please tell me im not the only one!

    I'm doing a bachelor of psychology at uws and I have 4 kids aged 4, 3, 18 mnths and a 3 mnth old. Dh does night shift and so I only study when he gets up in the arvo and weekends. Honestly, it can be really stressful but I don't want to postpone as I've had one too many semesters off due to having babies and it's taking forever to finish! I totally rely on Dh to look after the kids when I'm on campus as daycare is too expensive to consider, being supported by only one income. I usually miss out on lectures when it can be accessed online so I can stay home and give Dh a break as he has enough stress from a physically demanding job to deal with on top. I don't have family to help out as most are living interstate or physically unfit to help so I really have my Dh to thank for supporting me continuously.

    I am in my 1st year of studying BOA Pathway to Teaching Primary School as a mature age student at UWS and am also Mamma to a fabulous 1 year old daughter!

    I thought returning to full time study as a Mamma was going to be overwhelming because I haven't studied for well over 10 years and I have PND but if anything I have found it fantastic I am doing really well in all of my courses which is very exciting! My daughter is in Daycare 2 days a week and 1 day a week she is going to be with my parents. I think the hardest part of studying was leaving her for those first few weeks... I am a bit of an attached Mamma so I found it really hard at first... I am pretty sure thats normal though!

    Would love to meet some other Mammas that are studying especially ones at UWS Parramatta!

    This is me too except I'm hopefully starting in July and on-campus still very early days giving the Tafe a call back tomorrow to get the application process started. I can't wait!!! I have a 4yr old dd (5 in June) who is in prep. How are you finding it?

    Also a question if you complete diploma of enrolled nursing and want to continue on to a duo degree in registered nursing/ midwife how much study are you exempt from with the diploma of en?

    I was looking for something like this thread! It's so good to see other mums are studying too I was at uni for 3 years but didn't finish the course, last week I just started with open universities hoping to do a B science in sustainable energy management. My sons 8 weeks old so it's a very interesting and demanding time. Funny thing, I think I study more often now than before, maybe it's knowing you can't rely on 'tomorrow' so if there's time do it ASAP haha.
    Good luck everyone!!!
