A great amount of women are complaining that they cannot afford to take a maternity leave because it prevents them from bettering their careers. August 14, 2012
A new article that has been recently posted on Working Mums Magazine features the results of a poll on working mums and maternity leaves: out of 180 mums, 53% were of the opinion that, once pregnant, their chances of climbing the social ladder would decrease significantly. They claim that it is almost impossible to take a year off and still remain successful as a businessperson.
Fiona Lewis strongly disagrees and is of the opinion that, as life evolves we have to learn to evolve with it. Making adjustments in order to adapt to the new challenges of life are normal things and we have to know how to do this successfully.
“Many working mums are able to adjust their onsite working hours and work remotely for part of the week” she said. “But many more are establishing innovative and very profitable businesses which they run totally from home...Very often young mums are being replaced by other employees and it is impossible for them to regain their position once they come back from their maternity leave.
But quitting is not an option, and nor is leaving babies in the care of nannies. Some people simply cannot afford paying a nanny to take care of their children, and the only solution remains for the mum to stay at home. But instead of becoming stay-at-home mums, women can become work-at-home mums. “The online business world makes it easy to outsource many tasks, to providers all around the world, often leaving these work from home mums in a management or coordination role.”, says Fiona Lewis.
