"It can be difficult to find time to coordinate all the practicalities of being a working mother and it is difficult to keep all the plates spinning all the time. Mother@Work exists to try and help you be as informed as possible about the various aspects of being a mother and working - from the practical aspects of using your income wisely and knowing your employment rights to making sure you have time for yourself, your health and your relationships with the people around you.
"I found that while there are plenty of magazines that deal with leisure time and how to look gorgeous and achieve the perfect pasta bake, none comprehensively attacked juggling a job, a social life, your kids lives, keeping everyone happy and then maybe, just maybe, finding ten minutes for yourself somewhere. But more importantly, how to save time and what to do when it feels like time runs out.
"The transition to working mother was hard, believing if I was organised enough, not much would have to change. It took my brother to point out that I was the one putting the stress on myself and that I was the only one who could make a difference.
"I hope that in providing this website we can help make things a bit smoother. We have come across many stories of employers not willing to make exceptions, people finding no time to sort out financial situations (or knowing where to start), women wanting to take action and rearrange their lives but being too busy to do it - to name just a few. There's a lot of us out there!
"This webzine is the result of just some of that research. I hope that as Mother@Work grows, you will grow with us and enjoy using it as much as we have building it!"
