Hi Pooja! Congratulations!U have asked very pertinent questions which is in the mind of every woman who has already been through or is about to enter this beautiful phase. Coming to the answers which will be completely my view and could not be generalized .1.Yes with time priorities change. There is a point of time in life when u would feel now it's time to give precedence to family over career. Though the decision would be difficult but at that moment it would seem to be appropriate. 2. That is perhaps a difficult question to answer without actually knowing the circumstances whether one has family support or trusted adults around who could take care of the LO in yr absence. 3. This decision again depends on whether one has family support or one could exercise the option of sending one's child to daycare. 4. Coping with the feeling of leaving yr career is not easy for sure. There will be feeling of guilt and frustration,feeling of helplessness. So I would advise it is better to strike a balance between work and family . Though it could be stressful and tiring but at the end of the day u would find yrself to be useful and have a positive self image. hope this serves the purpose. Tkcare.
