Once you experience childbirth, the next few months spent in trying to adjust and adapt. By the time the feeling of motherhood sinks in, a working woman faces the dilemma of whether to resume work or not.
If you are working in India, then you are eligible for six months of paid maternity leave. For a mother even the six months time period seems less. The child is solely dependent on mother for first six months of life and suddenly overnight the mother leaves the kid to go work. Thankfully, there are few organizations who are understanding and help a returning mother.
If you are sailing through the same boat, I would advice not to stress too much. Give yourself a break, this is a new phase of your life and you will do alright. Get a makeover and be confident! Learn to prioritize your time while at work. The coffee breaks during the day might decrease but its all for greater good.
If you are one of the ambitious ones, you might secretly be waiting to join work. Don’t feel guilty about it, there is no reason not to focus on your career after having a child. You will be able to maintain a work-life balance. First few months might be difficult. But, every dark cloud has a silver lining!
Be ready to accept help and trust others. It’s perfectly fine if you let a close family member or trusted friend take care of your child during the day. It might sound harsh, but if need be, then do not hesitate to keep your child in a day care.
At every step there will be people judging you for how you raise your child. Be assured that a mother’s instinct is best for her child. If you feel something is right, then do it. Do not fret over it. And, go get it girl!

Ah it indeed is a tough stage for almost all women. We are constantly judged and this affects are psyche to a large extent. and to top it we have to handle the diffculties of being a new mom. What can I say, but just that one needs to be calm and breathe easy as this too shal pass by soon.
