Interview With A Working Mum is a guest blogger series I created at the start of 2017.
I know first hand how hard it is to be a working mum – juggling work and family life is stressful, tiring, and there’s just not enough hours in the day!
There are loads of us doing it though, and I find it fascinating how everyone manages to cope in their own way.
Hopefully any struggling working mums out there, or those thinking about returning to work, will feel inspired, motivated and hopefully a little less daunted by the thought of working and raising a family after reading how other working mums manage it.
