Tips for the New Mom Who is Also a Career Woman

You’re Balancing on a Tight Rope and Juggling

Just as those who walk a tight rope might do everything from juggle to perform gymnastic stunts, as the mother of a newborn, it is possible for you to retain your productive capabilities as a career woman as well. It’s going to get tough, and you’ll need to be technologically literate enough to take full advantage of available opportunities, but it’s possible.

Now keep in mind, it’s best for new mothers to be free of other distractions and obligations as much as possible for the first three years of their baby’s life. It’s not always something that can be done, but as you’re able, you want to take time to focus on your child. This has made being a mom and a professional impossible for many women.

However, technological decentralization along remote infrastructure segues was definitively expanded owing to the fallout from 2020’s lockdowns. The net result of this is the rise of remote work in which 1 in 4 people work from home now. When you think about it, the majority of white collar “work” in an office is done digitally anyway, and doesn’t even really require a specific schedule.

So if you’re savvy and clever, you can definitely do the work at home while raising a newborn. It’s going to be tough, though. Hopefully you’re not so pressed for options that you have to go full-bore full-time on both these things at once. However, if you find yourself in this position, consider the following tips to help lighten your load.

1. IoT Devices and Telemedicine

Internet of Things devices like smartphones decentralize many services. You can book a medical examination in the comfort of your own home through telemedicine solutions. These utilize tablets or smart phones, which are IoT devices, that incorporate software such as Zoom for remote face-to-face communication.

2. Lactation Support Consultation

You may have the ability to multitask while breastfeeding, though that’s going to be a bit of a challenge. Check out these breastfeeding positions for babies, and see if any of them will work for you and your child. Getting it right can free up your hand, allowing you to nourish your baby and get work done for your remote work-from-home job simultaneously.

3. Utilizing Delivery Services

You can have groceries acquired and delivered to your front door using online apps. Instead of spending half the day getting ready for the trip, shopping, and returning home, you just send your list to the delivery people and put the items away after they’re delivered to your front door.

Finding Your Stride as a Pro and a Mom

Making full use of available home delivery services, lactation support consultation, IoT devices, and telemedicine can all make things easier for you as a professional mom. As possible, you want to split the load of parenting with your spouse, and find childcare; but in a pinch, leaning on today’s tech options can lighten your load.
