Being Mom and Working
Difficult to find a balance between motherhood and her own ambitions. To evolve professionally implies necessarily to make personal sacrifices, in the same way that to maintain one’s marriage and to become a mother will necessarily engender professional sacrifices.
How to manage this ambivalence?
Start by accepting the fact that you can not be on all fronts and that you do not stick to the perfect woman image that the company conveys.
Many family mothers have the feeling of never doing enough, of not being able to organize themselves properly, or of not being sufficiently present.
You have the right to be tired and imperfect without necessarily feeling guilty. While the evolution of society allows fathers to become more involved in their family life, statistics show that women are more concerned with household tasks and children, even when they have a job in time full.
Reconciling couple life and professional ambitions
Like all forms of relationship, a couple deserves to be nurtured by simple attentions and compromises (on the part of both man and woman).
We avoid leaving the office every night of the week after 8 pm, we do not bring home work (as much as possible) and we stop talking non-stop about this hyper-important contract or the colleague who annoys us for some time.

And finally, if the balance between work, child and couple life requires good organization and the establishment of simple rules, all is about feeling and communication.
