When I worked in the City as a finance lawyer, before I had kids, I knew it would be tough to have a family and keep my career on track. But it didn’t stop me wanting it all.
I looked around for the encouragement, support and advice that would prepare me for that challenge, but there was no help out there. Nothing that spoke to me as a career woman and a want-to-be but not-quite-there-yet parent.
I remember thinking: if only there was somewhere – a website, a community, a safe place to hang out – where I could connect with others with the same ambitions and fears; where I could be honest about wanting it all and, instead of being told I couldn’t have it, be given support and practical advice from those who were doing it and making it work.
No such space existed for me, so in 2013 I set out to create that space for those who would come later. And so BabyProof Your Life was born – to create the community, the support and the blueprint for having it all and making it work. Click here to learn more about Babyproof Your Life.
