Work at Home (WAH) Options?
Staying at home with babe is not necessarily a financially advantageous situation. Many mamas try to craft a work plan that allows them to stay at home, while also trying to make ends meet. An urbanMama's sister-in-law recently emailed, to see if the rest of the community had suggestions:
My brother and his wife recently had their first child and we are all thrilled. She teaches and has worked it so that she took her maternity leave at the beginning of the school year and will have to be returning to teach in December while my brother takes all his sick days to stay home and take care of they baby.
My sister-in-law would would love to work from home and take care of they baby full-time, but she doesn't have a job that will work like that at the moment. Financially, they both need to be working. I know it's going to be really tough for my SIL to go back and I'm wondering if you have tips on things she might be able to do from home in order to keep ends meeting and still be with the baby.
Do you know of work options that could allow a mama to stay home with the baby?
