I know the usual answers are when you’re financially and emotionally stable. But for a young woman who has only recently got her foot in the door of the career she wants there’s this: I either have a baby early on in my career and go back to work and build up my career later, or this: work my way up and then pull out later to have a baby in like 5 or 6 years time?

I know that there’s no right answer. But I was just wondering.

I plan to take a few years off when/if I have a child. I want to see my child grow up and as people keep telling me, the first couple of years are the best. I don’t want to miss that.

But it’s interesting that despite the assumption that women don’t need to choose between family and career, that choice still stands, looming large over a woman’s consciousness.
