    Returning to work after baby

    My baby hasn't even arrived yet and Im already anxious about going back to work!
    My main worry is that I wont feel like leaving the baby and being away for many hours.

    Any other mothers going back to work after baby? How do you feel about it? How old will the baby be when you return?
    OR

    Mothers who already have experience regarding this, can I hear your negative or positive stories please.

    Hello!

    I am also in the same situation as you...baby is due end of April but I'm already a little nervous of going to work although I will probably wait a few months first as I have to look for a job first!
    The thing I am most nervous about is leaving baby with someone to look after while I am working as my husband does long hours too...

    I guess I will have to wait and see when baby is born.
    I think all will be more defined once I find a good helper and even a job which will probably be part time at first!

    Good luck to you!

    Hopefully the helper will be nice. In my case I will ask my mother to come to HK and help. Good luck to you too!

    Revesi you are so very lucky to have your mummy here to help you. It makes it so much easier to go back to work when you know your precious one is in safe hands.

    Revesi,

    Here's a very good discussion on going back to work. You will feel guilty but finding the right balance for you is so important.

    I had gone thru this situation few months ago. For the first month at work, I run back to home right afterward even I have a helper still not feel comfortable...

    I think I'm getting used to it, don't worry too much ~
