It's working for Victoria M
"I went to work knowing I had to support our family - it was me, or no one. I had to be successful, plain and simple."
That I didn’t have to try so hard to convince people that I was “really ok” with leaving my kid at home to work. It is OK to acknowledge that it’s heartbreaking to leave your child. Not to dwell, but admit it to yourself, your spouse, your friends. Talk to someone about what that feels like.
I believed strongly in breast feeding – I was so grateful I was able to continue to do so for 21 months, even with going back to work.
