So I have returned to work, been back 3 months. I teach but returned on the basis I would do office, mentoring, out of class. Now they want me to teach a class part time. The hours will be long, i am scared of the work load. I am considering quitting but I’m scared of that too. Has anyone else not returned after maternity leave?
I haven’t returned to work yet but dreading it after maternity leave. After having a year with my baby I have realised how precious life is and time flys by so fast. I don’t think you are a failure for thinking like this. It sounds like you know yourself and what makes you happy. Have you explored the idea of part time work instead of full time?
I returned to work when my child was 10 months .I returned part time but the nursery was 45 minutes away plus I had to catch a bus and two trains to get to work . Sometimes I existed on 2 hours asleep and I was robotic for 6 months no help from no where.
So the child is 7 years old and I’m glad that I continued to work . It was a huge struggle but your inner strength will help you
I have a salary coming in and we can afford to pay our bills and eat . Please reduce your days and seek tax credit your little one will grow so quickly .
