I wish that I could have prepared myself better for the aftermath, the breastfeeding and the separation from my babies by going back to work.
I was self-employed and on and off work with all my pregnancies, so this didn’t impact me at all.
I returned to work when our first was 6 weeks old, by choice, because we needed the money and my mental state was suffering. The same happened with our 2nd, and with our third I took an entire year off and was working on the launch of The MOMS (Moms & The City).
My biggest support to go back to work was my husband.
Hamburgers and french fries everyday with my first. I had not eaten red meat in 7 years and I guess my body needed it, minus the fries.
As a working parent, I never expected that time away would be so hard and nothing has been so much easier!
