Hm. A lot of women find it a *relief* to get back to work. So you might be one of the lucky ones that feels that way.

Here in the US, we get 2 weeks unpaid maternity leave. Or something like that. Genius, eh?

Sorry I can't answer your question as to how other women do it. I've never been there, myself. And my mom didn't work until I was in 3rd grade.

Your employer doesn't offer "telecommute" options, or anything like that? Or flex-time which would be part-time telecommute part-time onsite?


Telecommute just does not exist here in Costa Rica, which transcends the borders of suckiness. Of course, if they offered it I'd take it in a heartbeat, but work here is done the traditional way: you get up in the morning, go to work, and then leave in the afternoon; all this while my precious baby stays at my mom's. Ew. Just ew.

And 2 weeks UNPAID??!! Well, I guess I just found the bright side to living in Costa Rica. That, and the cheapest medicine ever. Like free.
