These Honest Stories Of Women Balancing Motherhood And Career Is The Inspiration Working Moms Need

  • IWB Post
  •  August 6, 2019

I think it’s important to lift other working mamas up and encourage one another because nobody understands better than mothers, we are in this together! Here’s to the working mamas let’s show them that it’s possible to have it all even if we struggle finding the balance.”

These encouraging words are by Seattle’s Brittany Barnard who identifies herself as a mom first but gives equal importance to the fact that she is a career-oriented woman. Featured on a wonderful Instagram page, Millennial Working Moms, her story is just one of the experiences shared by many new moms who are balancing career and motherhood.

Millennial Working Moms is a “community for working mothers” which was created to support new and veteran mothers and give them a place with “no judgment where moms can get advice, tips, and support on all things related to motherhood and their career.”

“We want to be here by your side to encourage, motivate, and support you as you navigate through motherhood and your own personal goals and dreams. We want to be a reminder for you that you can be an amazing mother and still chase your dreams,” reads their website.

Their sole goal is to remind and make everyone realize that every mom is a working mom “from the moment our bodies begin working on our beautiful babies, to delivery, postpartum, nursing, going back to work, and finding the time to balancing it all.”

Here are some heartwarming stories of amazing moms from around the world:

This week a mom reached out and asked if we ever shared stories of moms currently going to school. The answer is a huge YES! We’ve featured a few in the past and will continue to do so. As a matter of fact, we are featuring one right now! 😬 Any mama who is doing everything and anything in her power to provide for her kids is a working mama to us! Because #allmomsareworkingmoms 🤗❤️ ⠀ “I kissed him goodbye today while he was sitting in his bouncer and as I was closing the back door he looked up from his toy and stared at me all wide eyed and perfect and it was the WORST. I fought back tears the whole way to school. 😭 I’m doing this for you sweet baby. So you can have a better life, so you can go to college, so you can know your Mom never quit no matter how hard it was. I honestly can’t wait to see who he’ll be when he grows up. I want him to know he can dream as big as he wants secretly hoping he’ll be a nurse or doctor or PA but if he decides he loves tech and business like dada that’s fine too. This baby has been such an amazing part of my nursing school journey. I’ve honestly felt like every step of the way, we’ve been in this together. From semester 1 (with morning sickness) cleaning up defecated sheets 3x in a row for the same patient, to med surg and pharmacology, staying up until 2 am reciting drugs with him doing flips in my belly, to my psych rotation where a Psych patient asked if it was his baby… 😳😳😳 And now here we are senior year, so close! We can do this 🙌🏼 keep going student mommas! You got this.” – Cassia E. // @cassia.eg ⠀ ✨Join our tribe @millennialworkingmoms for advice, features, tips, and support!✨
