    Default The Working Mamas Group

    Hi Ladies I wanted to share a group dedicated to working mothers.

    The Working Mamas is a dedicated to Mamas returning to work / joining & re-joining the workforce or starting and/or running a business from home. For me going back to work there were new responsibilities of being a Mother on top of my existing job – how overwhelming. I struggled with the fact how do I get my baby into a routine for work, managing sleep deprivation, how do I choose the right day care, what do I when my baby is not well and just how to manage the blues of being without her for 11 hours. It definitely been an experience and an ongoing *experience* that I feel passionate about and would like to share.

    There will be weekly updates and useful information from Vlogs, looking for work, family assistance, starting a business, how to juggle work and life being a mother amongst other things.

    We would love to meet new members to share experiences and information with.

    I'm in!

    I started work again part time about 2 months ago. DS is 9 months this week.

    My biggest worries each night before I have to work are - is DS going to sleep through or be up several times a night? and when he's sick - what do I do?

    It feels like a shot of adrenalin going through my heart when I hear him wake on a work night

    thanks for this thread - great idea!

    I just sent a request to join!

    I went back to work when my DS was 4.5 months old as I was the bigger earner and it allowed my DH to look after our son in the day whilst he is still able to work casually nights/weekends.

    It works well for us, doesn't mean it's not hard sometimes and that I don't wish I could do more 'mummy' type activities with DS.

    But working full time means I don't take any precious moments with my DS for granted

    Hi Girls, nice to meet you

    I’m Annie btw - and I administrate the page. I mostly lurk in BH and haven't posted much these days - but I used to participate in my January 2012 due date group.
    Yup Babyla it is a FB page. (a sidenote: I hope the link doesn’t get deleted) But down the bottom of the page there is a blue link you can click to go the page.

    There is a small mixture of BubHub ladies & Essential Baby members already in the group that are working mothers or would like to go back to work. Cheeriliee I agree wholeheartedly with & I also went back to work when DD was 4.5 months this year! I make every minute count definitely no moments with her go unwasted too

    I think it's a Facebook page now, not a group as such.

    Just do a search on Working Mamas and you should find it
