Birth & postpartum forum
Then what do you work as?
Well, I don’t know any men who go to work with a heavy heart while their wives are at home. Breastfeeds every 2 hours and changes nappies full of chicks.
For most people, 2 hours in the evening before going to bed is enough. Because most of them, also here in Urbia, let their lives continue, before the child, even after the child. Whether fire brigade, soccer or something else.
I now have 3 friends who went back to work after maternity leave.
Heike had a super well-paid office job, the husband had tried to gain a foothold with a house master service, but that doesn’t work as well in the country where you always have someone in the family who can fix it. So he stuck with it and she drove to work.
Marion couldn’t have children, nothing helped. So she became a master hairdresser and converted her grandparents’ old inn into a salon. The pressure is gone, she’s going to get pregnant. The man was a carpenter, he went to work on Mondays and Saturdays, and she would have opened the shop accordingly. 4 years later with the 2nd child as well.
Moni, an insurance clerk, who earned four times as much as him, went back to work 3 times after 8 weeks and he is at home. She now has a home office and breastfed 3 forever, with 1 and 2 she still had 2.5 hours of driving time a day.
I wouldn’t have done it, the best thing is still breastfeeding and the 1st year. In terms of money, it wouldn’t have mattered, both of them don’t earn much.
