Balancing a career and motherhood ft. Yasmin Karachiwala

Women face enormous pressure to not only raise their children to be the best and run their homes smoothly, but also to stay on top of their careers as if they have no other priorities. Between these demands, many grapple with feelings of guilt about going back to work post-pregnancy and find there’s a lack of workplace support. Some two thirds of working women in India struggle to resume their careers after starting a family.

In this episode, we hear from Pooja, a mother of two trying to decide whether she can go back to work. Would that mean abandoning her children? And, if she doesn’t, should she give up her chances of returning to the workforce? Evelyn, who is a working mom-to-be, is joined in this episode by celebrity fitness trainer and mum Yasmin Karachiwala to talk about her journey balancing the two careers and her tips for new parents.
