Hi, Im back to work after 2years mat. leave next month & Im nervous! :uhoh:
For any mums out there, how do you cope?
Would be great to get some advice/peace of mind form parents who are in the same position.

Flyingmum, for you to get answers that are helpful, it would be good if you could be a bit more specific.
You say you are nervous. What exactly is it you are nervous about?
Is it not having flown for 2 years and wondering if you can still do the job/pass the SEP tests/deal with the pax and deal with being away from home?
Or is it doubts about your child care arrangements that cause the nerves?
Or maybe you are wondering if having a Flyingmum might in some way be bad for your child?
Or maybe something entirely different that I havenīt thought about?
There are many flying mums here, no doubt with some of the answers you are looking for, but some clearer questions would help. :)

Yep, worried about being away from my young child.....I guess Im just looking for other Flighty mums to ease my mind & say "it's great, it will all work out!" HA
I'll be going back fulltime & long haul, so I wonder, is there other mothers who do this?
With my Airline most of the mums are part-time, so I would like to hear from full time flying mums if possible.
Really just reaching out to hear it will be all ok...........
