Talk to most working mothers and you´ll find that the hardest day in their life after the birth of their baby was not the first few weeks, in which they were sleep deprived, or even the first set of immunizations, though those are never fun. No, most mothers will tell you that their hardest day was the day that they returned to work after the birth of their child. It doesn´t matter if they have one child or four, or if they stayed at home for three months or thirty-six.
