Babyproof Your Life

Where do you go if you are a young professional woman thinking about starting a family? Where do you look to find answers to questions like these:

Taylor's dummy
  • Is there a 'right' time in my career to start a family?
  • What effect will having a baby have on my relationship?
  • How soon will I get my body back after having a baby?
  • What are my partner's expectations of my role as a mother and do they match mine?
  • Exactly how painful is labour and could I cope with the pain?
  • How tough is pregnancy on the body and how long could I carry on working?

Couple with babyWhat Caroline discovered was a real need for somewhere that professional women can go to find answers to these questions before they have a baby, so that they know what to expect and can make sure they are prepared. Caroline's response to that need was to create Babyproof Your Life, a place where professional women who are thinking about starting a family can find the answer to the question: "How do I fit a baby into my life"?
