Mum’s Supporting Mum’s through PORSE
Will they cuddle them as much as you do? Will they get picked up when they cry? Will someone change their nappy as regularly as you would? Who will that be? Will it be a different person each day? How many children will be sharing their focus and energy?
It’s a daunting thought. You know you need to go back to work (and no doubt far earlier than you wanted to), to keep the family budget in good health, but the idea of leaving your precious little one with someone else just breaks your heart. Finding someone to care for your little one is a hard task. On one hand, you simply have to, but on the other, your heart really just isn’t in it. If you regularly enjoy coffee with your antenatal group, envious of those that are thinking of not returning to work, take a moment to think, could they be a good alternative? You have grown together with your babies; you know each other’s approaches to parenting, and have most likely built friendships that will last a lifetime.
