The Working Mother

When I found I was pregnant with Sander I knew I had some decisions to make. What sort of work could I do that would allow me adequate time with my child and yet provide me with an income relative to my needs? I quickly decided to attend a teacher training course to teach at secondary school.  Deciding on which course to attend was dependant on the institute that would support me with my newborn. Auckland University allowed me to take my newborn (five week old) to all classes and lectures. It was, overall, a very good experience. I wasn’t comfortable breastfeeding in the class with my peers so I simply left and sat in an empty room. I was worried that perhaps the stress of the environment coupled with the impact of being a new mother might affect my breastfeeding but my worries were never realised. However I did feed Sander from one breast for the 20 months that I nursed him. He had completely rejected the left breast from about his second week of life. Fortunately, as I found out, one is as good as two and surprisingly no one ever noticed a lopsided look. But who would be looking anyway! When Sander was six weeks old I was on section (teaching placement). I had […]
