Since becoming a working mum, she has utilized various childcare options available –nanny, relatives, domestic helper, childcare centre, even a short sprint at the infant care centre - to continue working away from home but later discovered through painful experience that nothing beats being there personally for her pre-school children in the majority of their waking hours.
She hopes to use her writing to encourage more working mums to have the best of both worlds and help their children, spouse and other family members enjoy the working mum’s presence where and when it matters most.
