Let us go step by step. First do all the process required to look for work. Begin building your resume. Look out for a job that would enable you to be neare home- maybe a part time job would be good initially. See if you can find online jobs where you can work from home. Then search for a good day care centre. Begin applying. Attend interviews. Negotiate your terms as a young mother. By the time you do all this it will be few months. By then your child becomes a toddler. Take each day step by step. If and when he cries deal with it. Yes you would cry. You would feel guilty too. You will have to balance home and work. Crying would be temporary for both of you as both of you will get used. Prepare mentally to spare exclusive time with your baby on your return.. list down all the pros and cons before taking the plunge. All the best.
