I can relate to how a mother undergoes postpartum depression. We choose to be at home to give quality time for family and nurture a baby. Managing home and caring baby is like 24 x 7 working mom, but certainly we as women wish to take out time for ourselves and support family with income.
When baby gets quite of independence and start going to school, at that period we think of our Independence too. We want to support family with income and have bucks to spend on our wishes. Now that Coronavirus is taking toll over entire world, many companies are giving work from home jobs. Giant company like Twitter is enabling employees to WFH forever.
All praises to Moms who go on job, leaving their kid at home or day-care. It is roller coaster ride for Mothers to stick with office schedule in weekdays. Many other women think of leaving 9 to 5 job due to these challenges. It creates anxiety and depression among them as they struggle to come out of being Domestic Mom. We face difficulties in all aspects be it Emotional, Financial or Psychological.
