Bravo Anna! So well said! I was lucky to already work for myself when I had my daughter and could not imagine being about to manage it under the constraints I had when I worked a 9-5. But let's be real, parenting as a freelancer is no walk in the park either. I was incredibly luck to have clients who continued to pay ongoing contracts while I took time off after giving birth and always supported me when I need to move a meeting, pump or breast feed during a call, or bring my daughter with me when I worked. We should work because it facilitates the life we want, including being the best parents we can be. If it doesn't do that, then there's no point.
