E21: Can women have a career & a family & not go cray-cray?

You can have it all…just not all at once. We have Oprah to thank for that pithy quote! Today, we get to the heart of how women juggle family and career and where the tensions lie. We talk to three women all at different stages of their careers and their family life. Han is just about to have her first baby. And Lou and Tab have two boys a piece and are deep in the weeds of juggling work and career. Can you be a great mum in today’s yummy-mummy culture and have a stellar career at the same time, without going cray-cray?

LISTEN TO EPISODE 21 HERE

Links to some of the things Hannah, Lou and Tab touched on:

  • Bastion Collective founder Fergus Watts talks about work/life balance and what it means to him here.
  • The Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Line is a statewide telephone service available every day of the year fo Victorian families with children from birth to school age. Maternal and child health nurses can provide information, support and guidance regarding a range of issues including child health, nutrition, breastfeeding, maternal and family health and parenting. More info here.
  • Jacinda Arden, New Zealand’s new Labour party leader was out on the husting on day one of the 2017 election campaign and straight out of the gate she was asked about her plans for motherhood and how that would impact on her ability to lead the country if she became the next prime minister (she was unsuccessful). Do you think that’s a fair question? Background briefing here
